Royal National Institute for Deaf People
The goal of RNID is together to make life fully inclusive for deaf people and those with hearing loss or tinnitus. In the UK, 1 in 5 adults are deaf or have hearing loss, and 1 in 8 have tinnitus.
Despite that, many people face the stigma of being treated as stupid, shouted at, or made fun of. There’s a frustrating lack of patience, empathy and understanding. Barriers to work, travel, socialising and communication take a toll on self-esteem and mental wellbeing, and cause social isolation. Day-to-day life is more difficult – and this needs to stop.
It’s a big challenge. But together, we can change things.
