What it’s like to volunteer with us

Our incredible volunteers make a huge difference to the lives of people who are Deaf, or have hearing loss or tinnitus.

Shaila’s volunteering story: “I really wanted to help other people who have hearing loss”

Shaila started volunteering with us in 2019. She is an administration and information outreach volunteer, and helps hundreds of people with hearing loss by giving information in both English and Gujarati.

Shaila says: “I feel very happy volunteering for Action on Hearing Loss. Volunteering has brought me a lot of opportunities and certainly helped boost my confidence.”

Our volunteers recommend us

More than 90% of our volunteers said they would recommend Action on Hearing Loss as a good place to volunteer.

We asked people for their thoughts in our 2018 volunteer satisfaction survey, and one person said:

“Since volunteering I have regained a sense of purpose in my life and I feel able to try new things, personally and professionally. I’ve learned so much.”
