Advice Hub to close...



A grant will be made to raise awareness instead (Good luck with that!).  More jobs for the BSL lad's given HoH don't bother...

A visitor centre of a Shropshire-based charity dedicated to helping the deaf and those living with hearing loss will close its doors at the end of the month due to a lack of funds. 

The Hub which is based in the Riverside in Shrewsbury, will shut for good in a couple of weeks time. The Hub was entirely funded by donations which have not been sufficient to keep it open. Those clients who currently use the service will be told of other providers who can give support and advice and provide equipment maintenance. 

The Hub provided help and support and offered a range of services including hearing aid repairs, befriending and outreach work, deaf awareness training and British sign language classes. The Shropshire NHS Audiology team also visited three times a week to provide appointments to those concerned about their hearing.
