Royal National Institute for Deaf People

RNID logoThe 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.
