Deaf Awareness Week 2020

Posted by Matt Sadler

***Please note this offer is now closed***

Due to the unbelievably high demand for these free products, we have now run out of the 1,500 we had in stock for our Deaf Awareness Week giveaway. We’re delighted we could help so many people and we hope they make things a bit easier for you.

For anyone who was unable to claim one of these products, we are currently looking at what else we might be able to do in the near future to offer something similar. We also hope to be able to reopen the Hearing Link online shop in due course, where these products can be purchased. In the meantime, for anyone who is Deaf/deaf or has hearing loss and is finding things difficult, contacting our Helpdesk could be helpful to you. You can find out more about the Helpdesk and contact us at

For Deaf Awareness Week, we are making three of our hearing loss awareness products completely free of charge

With an increasing number of people wearing face masks in public places because of the Coronavirus crisis, deaf people who rely on lipreading are facing increased communication barriers when visiting essential places such as hospitals, supermarkets and banks. This can make things incredibly difficult and can even pose a safety risk.

If you, or someone who know, are struggling with this, we can help. We will send you a hearing loss awareness communication card, pin badge or wristband, completely free of charge, that you can show someone to let them know you are deaf or have hearing loss. Just fill in the form below to request your free product.


Please note that, in order to help as many people as possible and to ensure swift delivery, we are not able to accept specific product requests – we will send you one of the three products in the photo above.

We have limited stock and can only provide one product per person. If you work in a social care setting and require more than one, please contact and we will see how we can help.

Please note that our offices are currently closed so we are only able to ship these products on a weekly basis. All deliveries will be made by Royal Mail and should arrive within 14 days. UK orders only.
