Join panel and help hearing aid charity

A CHARITY has issued an appeal to people from Belper who are deaf or hard of hearing to join its research panel and influence the organisation’s work.

Action on Hearing Loss — formerly RNID — wants interested townsfolk to get in touch.

Panellists will have regular opportunities to take part in the charity’s research projects by completing short surveys as well as through one-to-one interviews and focus groups.

Director of research, policy and government relations at the charity, Roger Wicks, said: “We’d be grateful if Belper residents would get involved in our panel.

“It will be a great opportunity for them to highlight vital everyday issues and help shape our future work improving the lives of people who are deaf or have hearing loss or tinnitus.”

People can join the research panel by completing a short questionnaire at or by sending an email to
