A charity helping people with hearing loss is inviting residents in St Albans and Harpenden to join a research panel to help shape the charity’s work.

Panellists for Charity Action on Hearing Loss will have regular opportunities to take part in the UK’s largest hearing loss charity’s research projects by completing short surveys as well as through one-to-one interviews and focus groups.

Director of policy and campaigns at action on hearing loss, Roger Wicks, said: “We’d be grateful if St Albans and Harpenden residents would get involved in our panel, which we hope offers a great opportunity to feed in their first-hand experience of hearing loss and highlight everyday issues that will help shape our future work, supporting people who are deaf or have hearing loss or tinnitus to live their lives to the full.”

For more information or to get involved in the research panel, people can complete a short questionnaire at www.aohl.org.uk/researchpanel or by e-mailing: panel@hearingloss.org.uk
