The event will offer people the chance to become fully informed about various services provided by the charity and partner organisations including Age Scotland, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, SISG, Home Energy Scotland and NHS Ayrshire & Arran People attending can get their NHS hearing aids maintained, find out about assistive equipment for their home, information on hearing loss and help with social security claims.

Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s Fiona Goodwin said: “We’re holding our information event in Prestwick to enable people to get detailed information and ask questions about hearing loss, hearing aids, equipment, communication tips or anything else which can help them in their everyday lives.

“We’d be delighted to welcome people with hearing loss who may not be aware about all the support that is available to ensure they can continue to follow conversations with family or friends and live the life they choose.”
