Support Our Chosen Charity The Elizabeth Foundation On Deaf Awareness Week - The Directory Group

Support our Chosen Charity The Elizabeth Foundation on Deaf Awareness Week

Published on 18th May 18


Deafness is something which isn’t commonly spoken about – yet it affects around 11 million people across the UK.

Of that figure, 50,000 children have hearing loss. Around half are born with hearing loss while the other half lose their ability to hear during childhood.

These upsetting figures are a reminder of how fortunate many of us with good hearing are – especially among children.

On Deaf Awareness Week, we highlight the wonderful work taking place locally to support kids who are deaf.

The Elizabeth Foundation, one of The Directory Group’s Chosen Charities based in Hampshire, is a national charity supporting infants and pre-school children with hearing loss. They also provide support to their families.

It helps babies and children with all degrees of hearing loss learn to listen and speak.

It does this by providing pre-school education services at its Family Centre, along with help, support and advice for families all over the UK. 

Their admirable work is literally changing lives for the better. None of this would be possible without the generosity of their supporters.
