If you are in receipt of Supplementary Benefit and would struggle to pay for the hearing aids without assistance you should contact the Social Security Department, Edward T. Wheadon House, Le Truchot, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 3WH (Tel. 01481 732501). Explain that hearing aid(s) have been prescribed and the reasons why you would find it difficult to afford to pay for them yourself. SSD will request information from the hearing aid provider and perhaps ask for further financial information from you. SSD then may or may not award a full or partial grant depending on their evaluation.
If you are not in receipt of Supplementary Benefit, or if the grant awarded is insufficient to pay for the aids that have been prescribed, GHH may be able to help, taking into consideration your individual circumstances.
