GOOD NEWS

In spite of the predicted massive cuts to our funding we now have a reprieve for 12 months.  This means the services and support we provide for people with a hearing loss will continue - but only for one year.  Thank you to everyone who supported us through the last few difficult months by lobbying your MP, councillors, newspapers etc.

New Trustees needed


We are currently seeking new trustees to help run The East Sussex Hearing Resource Centre.  Ideally you should have a background in a commercial / business environment or alternatively previous experience working in the charity sector either as a trustee, volunteer or paid member of staff.  We are particularly keen to recruit trustees with a financial or management background and also personal experience of hearing loss.
 
Our trustees are responsible for ensuring that the aims of the charity are met in accordance with relevant governing documents and applicable charity law.

Trustees meetings are held bi-monthly to discuss any relevant issues, usually in the afternoon, which you would be expected to attend and fully participate in.

If you feel that this role may be for you, then please contact the Director - John Leonard, on 01323 722505 for more information and an application form.

 


 



A great opportunity

We have an exciting opportunity for someone who has an empathy and basic understanding of hearing loss and would like to train as a lipreading tutor.  The position is initially part-time with the possibility of additional hours on completion of training during which time you will receive full support and back-up from our experienced team.  If this sounds like you and you have some personal experience of dealing with hearing loss (maybe a family member or friend), then please contact John Leonard on john@eshrc.org.uk or 01323 722505 for more information.

FREE Hearing Aid Maintenance and battery replacements (for NHS hearing aid users ONLY) are now available from our Resource Centre, 8 St Leonard's Road, Eastbourne on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 12 midday and 2pm to 4pm. We also provide HAM support at venues throughout in East Sussex and for more information - please do contact us or see our Outreach Page.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR BROWN NHS HEARING AID BOOK WITH YOU.
