Kirkby Stephen has a drop-in service every 2nd Friday of the month – 10.00am – 12 noon held in the Local Links Centre, Vicarage Lane, Kirkby Stephen. To make an appointment please ring 07724 132277. Hearing Aid batteries can be collected free of charge from Kirkby Stephen Local Links during their opening hours of Mondays and Wednesdays 10 am to 12 noon, and 1 pm to 3 pm.
The project aims to bridge the gap in support for people with hearing loss by helping to maintain hearing aids, advise on amplified phones, TV loop systems, loud doorbells etc and befriending. This is done via regular monthly drop-ins around Cumbria where cleaning and re-tubing of hearing aids can be carried out and supplies of batteries are available.
The project will also visit people in their homes if they are house-bound and unable to get to the drop-ins or require a demonstration of phones, loop systems, door bells etc.
For more information please ring Kirkby Stephen Local Links on 017683 71775
