Welcome to the Norfolk Deaf Association 


The key objective of the NDA is to provide high quality information, support, awareness and communication services to young people and adults with all degrees of hearing loss in Norfolk.

Norfolk Deaf Association (NDA) is dedicated to improving the lives of young people and adults with all degrees of hearing loss. This is achieved by providing hearing aid maintenance, advice on assistive listening devices and communication methods, befriending, and support and information on hearing loss and other related conditions.  The pages on this site provide information about our services which are delivered by a small staff and an army of willing volunteers. 


New Service and Club Posters

We have created some striking new posters for our services and clubs which are available for download by clicking on the thumbnail image. Please feel free to download any of these posters to display in your surgery, health centre, or social club.

Important Notice About NNUH Hearing Aid Batteries

The Audiology Department  at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (which includes Cromer) has changed the way batteries are issued, which means that you can no longer obtain them from GP surgeries and health centres. You can either obtain them from the NNUH directly or from one of the Norfolk Deaf Association's community clinics or mobile clinic.

If you have one, please bring your NNUH hearing aid card with you when you visit our clinics. 



NDA Volunteer Appeal

We are constantly on the look out for new volunteers to join our dedicated army of volunteers, many who have been with us for years,  help us to deliver an increasing workload. Our essential services include hearing support clinics, assistive listening clinics and befriending. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the NDA and helping us witrh this rewarding work, please email Pam Spicer (hearingsupport@norfolkdeaf.org.uk) or phone 01603 404 440 for more information and an application form. Why not browse our website while you are here and visit our Volunteering pages to see what appeals to your interest.


Small acts of kindness that mean so much!




 Aviva Community Fund - Please Vote for the NDA


We're delighted to announce that our initial application for the Aviva Community Fund has been approved!

The next stage is to gather as many public votes as we can in support of our application. Our unique voting link is https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/16-2585

 Please share this link with anyone and everyone who might be willing to vote for us - your friends, family and any other business/organisations you have contact with. It would be great if you could please encourage them to do the same. 
This funding will enable NDA to invest and improve the range of devices available for people to try in our Assistive Listening Technology clinic.  This will enable us to provide practical advice and demonstrations to individuals, employers and education establishments on the ways assistive technolgoy can be effectively integrated into their communication systems. Euipment such as the Phonak Roger pen or ComPilot personal hearing hub, can transform access to telephones and lectures but the high cost prevents manufacturers of those devices from giving us demonstration equipment for free, preventing us form giving vital help to individuals who want to access crucial help in the workplace or at college..
Once public voting closes, the chosen finalists are then put to a judging panel at Aviva who pick the winners and award the funds.
Fingers crossed!

NDA Hearing Support Service Evaluation


Between February and April this year (2016), an independent evaluator interviewd some of our volunteers and service users to find out their views on our Hearing Support Service (HSS). The HSS is responsible for delivering the mobile hearing aid clinic and our community clinics held in health centres (see our clinic timetables for details).  We are grateful to everyone who particpated and helped us prepare this important report which will be used as part of our upcoming funding applications.  Please feel free to download, by clicking the image, and read the report.
