About Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a UK based charity which trains dogs to alert deaf people to a variety of sounds and danger signals both in public and in the home. Hearing dogs wear a distinctive burgundy jacket when working which helps make the invisible disability of deafness more visible and helps communication. These dogs increase independence and confidence and provide companionship to a deaf person who might, in the past, have felt too vulnerable and isolated to leave their home. As a result of the success of this charity, there has been a greater demand for hearing dogs from people with hearing loss throughout the UK. As nearly one in six people has some kind of hearing loss, there is a requirement for funds to help the Charity raise the number of hearing dogs that it trains each year.
