The Hertfordshire Hearing Advisory Service (HHAS) is an independent charity helping people with hearing loss across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, West Essex and Suffolk.

Established in 1981, the charity has over 30 years experience of helping people who are hearing impaired or deaf.

HHAS offers free help and advice to people affected by hearing loss. It runs a range of services, including free hearing support services in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and West Essex and Suffolk, and drop-in centres in Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead and Stevenage where people can get support and advice on their hearing aid and assistive equipment.

The charity also runs the Hearing Aider Programme, where volunteers visit residential homes, sheltered accommodation, day centres and housebound people to offer practical help and advice with their hearing aid.

As well as its services, the charity offers a range of training courses to people with hearing loss, or those that work with them.

HHAS depends on the support of the public and local companies. Visit the following links for more information on how you can help the charity by donating, volunteering, fundraising, or becoming a corporate partner.
