    CENTRAL MILTON KEYNES

    The Milton Keynes Hard of Hearing Support Group is the only support group in MK for people with all types of hearing loss including dual sensory loss and all ages in MK

    The Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday in the month and the room has a built in hearing induction loop for people with “T” settings on their hearing aids

    Once a month the Group has a presentation relevant to hearing loss. This can include Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, MK Theatre, Thames Valley Police, SARC the equipment service for sensory loss in MK funded by MK Council, lip reading tasters, Audiology and Adult Hearing Services to name a few.

    Once a month we have a coffee morning where we get to know each other, share information, and support each other in lots of ways. Our aim is to stop isolation and depression and to increase confidence in each other again. This year we have been able to go out as a group and really enjoy ourselves by visiting Bletchley Park and assessing their audio equipment sets, which were really fantastic!

    Do come along to our meetings. You will be made very welcome! We are a lively group and supportive so do try it!

    LISTENING THE VOICES OF HATE SURVIVORS

    The Fight Against Hate campaign of Citizens:MK has won the support of MK Council in hosting a new approach to reducing the effects of hate crime.  Hate legislation covers five grounds: race/nationality, religion, sexuality, gender identity and disability. The Council will host a twilight session, to hear the voices of residents, and/or those working or studying in Milton Keynes, who have experienced some form of hate towards them in MK, no matter how big or small.  The aim is to reduce their discomfort by simply giving them the opportunities to listen to each other’s stories about what happened to them. 

    LISTENING TO THE VOICES OF HATE SURVIVORS - May 24th 2017
