Deaf and Hearing Support is a Company Limited by Guarantee – registration no 8419437 and a Registered Charity, number 1151502. The organisation was set up in 1991 to ensure deaf and hearing impaired people have a good quality of life and are socially included.
The Board of Directors bring different skills to the organisation and 60% are deaf/hearing impaired and passionate about giving an excellent service to deaf/hearing impaired people in North Derbyshire.
The Executive Committee meets on a regular basis and at the Annual General Meeting the Directors are elected from the five districts of North Derbyshire from the membership of the organisation.
A Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Treasurer are also elected at the AGM.
We have two co-opted members: Debbie Farr – representing the Audiology Services (NHS) and Sue Mitchell - representing Adult Social Care Derbyshire County Council.
They are unable to vote at the meetings but give a valuable input into the services required by Derbyshire County Council and the North Derbyshire CCG.
We have a contract with Derbyshire County Council and North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver hard of hearing services to deaf and hearing impaired people in North Derbyshire.
The organisation is run on a daily basis by two paid workers and a dedicated team of volunteers.
You are invited to become a member of Deaf and Hearing Support and receive regular updates on hearing services and equipment.
The membership is £10.00 per annum for individual members and £15.00 per annum for couples.
Our members regularly seek information and advice from the organisation and we look forward to receiving constructive ideas how to improve our service in the community.
