Charitable Trusts, Foundations and Major Donors
The funding we receive through charitable trusts, foundations and major gifts contributes significantly to our work, helping deaf people to leave lonliness behind and reconnect with life.
We are grateful to have strong relationships with our funding partners and hope to welcome new supporters to the Hearing Dogs family. If you are interested in supporting our work with a major gift, please do get in touch with our team.
Why support Hearing Dogs?
Currently, 12 million people in the UK have hearing loss – and this figure is on the rise. It’s predicted that by 2035, one in five of us will have experienced some loss of hearing.
Deafness increases the risk of depression and dementia, causing £4bn per year of lost wages in the UK through unemployment and forced early retirement, and leaves people lonely and isolated.
Every year, the need for our support continues to grow. Profoundly deaf adults and children, many with complex life requirements, seek the life-changing benefits that a partnership with a specifically trained hearing dog can bring. Safety, independence, inclusion, and companionship are just a few of the benefits that our deaf partners report, enabling improved well-being, community integration, or a return to work or volunteering.
A hearing dog can help a deaf person regain their independence and confidence and dramatically reduce feelings of isolation and depression.
