Welcome to the Guernsey Hard of Hearing
It is estimated that 1 in 6 adults in the Bailiwick has some level of hearing loss: we have an ageing population, and people are living longer.
The Guernsey Hard of Hearing (GHH) has been in existence for over 30 years, initially as an Association of Members and in 2022 became a Limited By Guarantee company (LBG). We are a Guernsey registered charity and a member of the Association of Guernsey Charities.
GHH is an organisation formed to give help and support to deaf and hard of hearing adults in the Bailiwick, by lobbying for the provision of adequate services; by raising public awareness of the communication and other needs of deaf and hard of hearing individuals; and fundraising for the provision of equipment where individuals cannot provide for it themselves. A full range of activities and outings are arranged every year for the hard of hearing who enjoy meeting others to share experiences and provide mutual support. We try to choose venues that have good acoustics where possible to make communication easier, please see our forthcoming events – click here
