Hear Here Project Training Day

15 November 2019 10:00

Address: Church House Guildford, 20 Alan Turing Road, Guildford, GU2 7YF

1 in 6 people have a hearing loss in our Diocese.

An increasing older population and longer life expectancy mean that our church buildings need to be able to welcome and accommodate those with sensory loss to aid communication.

We are looking for volunteers to:

  • Be trained in the basic maintenance of hearing aids to become ‘hearing champions
  • Offer these simple maintenance sessions at existing church social events e.g. coffee mornings, lunches, afternoon teas

To be an effective Hearing Champion you will need good eyesight and good manual dexterity.

Hearing Champions Training will include:

  • Checking the hearing aid is working
  • Replacing the battery, battery life
  • Re-tubing
  • Fitting the hearing aid in the ear
  • Hearing aid controls
  • T-loop
  • Use of hearing aid
  • Assistive listening devices
  • Communication tactics
  • Outline of audiology pathways in your area

A sandwich lunch and refreshments will be provided along with an opportunity to purchase a basic maintenance toolkit.

If you are attending and have any dietary requirements, such as gluten free or dairy free, please email: who will ensure suitable food is available.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
