In 2013 it was estimated that in the county of Shropshire there were 64,000 hearing impaired adults in the community. Of these less than 10% are given support or advice or training in communication strategies to help them become more confident in social situations. I would like to increase this to as high a figure as possible.
Hearing Impairment by 2030, will be a major problem in the UK, on par or even exceeding Diabetes or Obesity.
