Here 2 Help
Here 2 Help aims to provide emotional logistical and technical support children and families struggling with Hearing Loss.
From the shrill ring of our alarm clock at the start of a new day, to the very last good night we hear in a hushed whisper, our days are filled with thousands of different sounds – loving sounds, alerting sounds, annoying sounds and just the everyday normal ones.
For the hearing impaired population, these sounds will never be taken for granted.
Hearing loss is a life-changing condition that effects people 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is an invisible problem that can have a devastating effect on relationships, education, and job prospects. People with hearing loss face barriers in their everyday lives. They can find it difficult to differentiate between speech and other noise which makes it hard to have a social life outside the home.
Children with hearing impairments may look completely regular, but their life is anything but. It can be lonely and isolating. They can often exhibit challenging behaviours as a result of their inner frustration, and these behaviours affect the entire family. They can also have learning difficulties as a result of their disability.
Here 2 Help was set up in 2016 by a group of parents of deaf children who recognized the need of a peer support group. From its humble beginnings, Here 2 Help has now become an immeasurable source of support for parents and carers, as well as children who are hearing impaired. We aim to support all individuals diagnosed with any degree of hearing loss in overcoming the challenges of deafness.
Here 2 Help aims to:
- We aim to support parent who seek guidance, advice and education. We have created a helpline for parents as well as provide personal meetings in a more individual and hands-on approach.
- We wish to reduce the isolation felt by parens struggling with a Hearing Impaired Child. We arrange support groups for parents to meet others sharing similar struggles monthly.
- We aim to provide logistical and technical support by training and matching up volunteers to help provide care and an extra hand to overworked parents.
