Dumfries and Galloway Hard of Hearing Group

Helping You Hear

Dumfries and Galloway Hard of Hearing Group is a grass roots organisation, established in 2008, by local people living with a hearing loss. We provide a local service to help hearing aid users access help and support to manage their hearing loss, and to maintain the function of their hearing aids. We run a variety of volunteer run clinics across the region which offer:

  • A care and maintenance service of NHS hearing aids;
  • An Advice and Support service regarding regular hearing aid maintenance
  • Peer support to help people manage their hearing loss
  • A referral service to other organisations, such as Sensory Support, Visibility and Audiology

In addition to this service our volunteers also visit people in their own home, and in care homes, if they’re unable to attend our local clinics.

We are a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation and we are reliant on volunteers who are critical to the continued provision of our service. We are forever grateful for the wonderful job they do.

As a charity we rely on donations to help us to continue to run our services. Any donation you can provide will help us to continue to deliver our clinics, visit Care Homes and undertake Home Visits to our most vulnerable service users. You can help us to keep Dumfries and Galloway Hearing.

We have 60 volunteers and one full time staff member and one part time staff member. In 2018 we helped 4579 service users and maintained 7816 hearing aids.


We are often in need of more volunteers to be trained to provide care and maintenance of hearing aids, perform meet and greet functions at clinics or help out with admin tasks in the office. Please follow the link to see what we currently offer.
