The Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People (CfD) has been delivering services within the Bristol area for over 140 years.

Our mission is to support and promote social inclusion and independence by providing free information and advice. We have an equipment service called Home@CfD and we are working on other projects which enable people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Deaf Blind to improve their wellbeing and make positive changes in their lives and communities.

Our officers are experts in the field of hearing loss; please visit us at CfD for support, advice and information. Families, friends and professionals are welcome to contact us for support too.

…I was very satisfied with the service. The two staff were professional and easy to communicate with. They were able to explain everything clearly and quickly gave me the replacement equipment.
