Help us protect sound

Together, we can protect sound

Sounds are precious. Help us fund research to prevent hearing loss.

Watch our new film which highlights the importance of sound.

‘The Sound’ was created by Harry George Hall and produced by Fresh Film Productions

What we’ve achieved so far

  • Our researchers identified 44 genes linked to age-related hearing loss
  • We discovered a potential stem cell treatment for hearing loss
  • Developed a test that could stop 200 cases every year of aminoglycoside-induced hearing loss in newborn babies.

Our discoveries will make a difference.

Coming to terms with my hearing loss was tough as an adult. It was even worse having to explain to my 8-year-old daughter that she inherited the same condition as me. I want research to find a way to protect her hearing so she can carry on listening to the sounds she loves and living life with no barriers.”
