Thanks to a small grant from the lovely people at Carriers for Causes (administered by Groundwork UK), we will now be able to replace the broken chairs in our Hall!!
Katy Sheridan, Finance and Resources Manager said:
“We were delighted to get this funding, as it means we can continue to provide quality room hire in our Centre for the various different groups. Our project “Chairs for Change” is being funded by the 5p carrier bag charge from OneStop stores in our local area, so if you have bought a 5p bag recently…thanks to you too!”
2017’s Tinnitus Awareness Week is taking place from 6-12 February.
The theme this year is “Together for Tinnitus.”
The campaign ‘Together for Tinnitus’ is intended to generate discussion about tinnitus and raise awareness of the work being carried out, and the support provided by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) and other services like us across the UK.
The British Tinnitus Association will be raising awareness amongst GPs about the condition and the treatment options available, so that they feel confident to support patients who are experiencing this often distressing and debilitating condition. During the week, the BTA are launching their official ‘Tinnitus Guidance for GPs’ document which will provide the most up-to-date information on how people suffering with tinnitus can best be helped from diagnosis through to self-help management of the condition.
Please visit https://www.tinnitus.org.uk/taw2017 for more information and how you can help.

This award recognises all the hard work we have done to provide quality services to our customers, clients and partners and is something we are very proud of.
