Technology can be confusing for us all but as a method of communication to support hearing loss can be extremely helpful.
Rather than make phone calls that you might struggle to hear why not use the internet to find out information? If you are struggling with technology please contact us and we will see if we can help - if we can't we will find someone who can.
Check out our equipment page to find out details of suppliers that use the latest technology in their products.
We are happy to provide opportunities to learn and practice, at a previous meeting the Shhh group were joined by volunteers from Techy Tea Parties who worked with individuals to provide one to one support.
