We train hearing dogs to alert deaf people to select household sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings - providing a life-changing level of independence, confidence and security.
Hearing Dogs volunteers are the lifeline of the Charity. Without the tireless support of our volunteers across a wide range of roles, we would not be able to provide so many life-changing hearing dogs to deaf recipients. The dedication, enthusiasm, motivation, knowledge, skills and experience of our network of volunteers is second to none.
Hearing Dogs was launched at the world famous Crufts dog show in 1982. Since then we have created over 1, 600 life-changing partnerships between deaf people and hearing dogs in the UK.
There are currently over 750 working partnerships in the country.
