Detailed description

What you’ll be doing

RNID Near You volunteers do 6 main activities to help us make life fully inclusive for deaf people and people with hearing loss and tinnitus.


You don’t have to do all 6 of these activities – you can pick the activities you find most interesting and match your skills and experience.


1. Maintaining hearing aids

Our volunteers support hearing aid users by cleaning their hearing aids and replacing batteries and tubing. They provide tips for getting the most from hearing aids.


2. Helping people check their hearing

Our volunteers help people take the RNID online hearing check. They take people through the steps in person on a digital tablet.


3. Informing people

Our volunteers help deaf people and those with hearing loss and tinnitus find information about:


- getting used to hearing aids and getting the most out of them

- using technology and assistive devices

- applying for benefits


4. Meeting and greeting

Our in-person volunteers welcome people to our services. They have a chat with visitors, find out what service or information they’re looking for and direct them to the right place.


5. Finding supporters and donors

Our volunteers do important work to help us find people who can support our services and people who can donate money to help us fund our services.


6. Administration

Our volunteers help us run our services by doing administrative tasks.

- finding employment

- finding support with employment

- and many other important topics.
