Hearing Dogs for Deaf People receives no government funding, relying on supporters in order to continue training dogs that change the lives of deaf people. The support of people coming to the walk will go a long way in helping us do this.

Not only do the dogs alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds, such as the smoke alarm, intruder alarm, oven timer and baby monitor, but they also offers lots of emotional support.

This is crucial as many deaf people can experience feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Anyone who supports the charity by coming along to take part in the walk will be directly helping many deaf people to leave behind loneliness and reconnect with life.
