Charity Coordinator Sue Salisbury:





Hearing Dogs for Deaf People train hearing Dogs who transform deaf peoples lives.


They train dogs to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds they would otherwise miss – such as the smoke alarm, alarm clock and even a baby's cry. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives, and can even save them. 

But these clever canines do so much more than alert their partner to sounds.

Deafness can be a very isolating disability. A hearing dog provides lots of love, companionship and emotional support. This is really important as many of the deaf people who come to us for help have felt very lonely and isolated. These amazing dogs help deaf children and adults to leave this loneliness behind and reconnect with life. 

As if this wasn’t enough – hearing dogs have saved countless lives in their important role; fire alarms sounding at the dead of night, alerting them to the shouts of a loved one who is in peril, even saving their deaf partners from potential car thieves!

Dogs are known for their loyalty and love – and we see these valuable traits in a hearing dog every day.

They have matched thousands of our adorable dogs with deaf people since their humble beginnings in 1982. At the moment, They have over 1,100 working hearing dog partnerships across the UK. They are also helping thousands more through Their other personalised services, such as our Helpdesk and support groups

The cost to train and support each hearing dog throughout their lifetime is £40,000 – so they rely heavily on theiramazing supporters to help them change lives. It really is all down to people like you, who give up timeeffort and money to help them create many life-changing partnerships and provide other important services. But there are still so many deaf people and people with hearing loss whom they can help.

A hearing dog and their deaf partner need to be carefully matched to ensure the partnership will work well.

So many things need to be taken into consideration – for example, whether a person lives in a big city or tiny hamlet, whether they have cats or other pets that a dog would need to get to know, what their individual needs are, what their social life, work life and family life are like, how active they are, and many other things. They then need to assess which dogs we have in training, what their strengths and weaknesses are, what they like and dislike, what their personalities are like, and which dogs would be the best match for different people.

They take the matching process very seriously to ensure we get it right - and create partnerships that will last.
