The Cork Deaf Association has a support group for people with hearing problems and new members are always welcome. The RNID (Royal National Institute for Deaf People) is a charity that works to make life fully inclusive for deaf people and people with hearing loss or tinnitus. Hearing Dogs for Deaf People trains hearing dogs to alert deaf people to select household sounds and danger signs in the home, workplace and public buildings, providing them with a level of independence, confidence and security that will change their lives. The RAD strives to meet the individual needs of deaf children and adults and deafblind people through the provision of services and the use of RAD centers for deaf people.
The Cork Deaf Association is committed to the empowerment of deaf and hard of hearing people in the city and county of Cork through the provision of information, promotion and support services. Deaf and Equal is especially aimed at sectors that have a bad reputation for discriminating against deaf people, either by denying them access or refusing to provide information in an accessible format. We also offer follow-up support and advice on hearing aids and adapting to hearing loss at the Cork Deaf Association.
