Who we are
Sound Seekers is a UK registered charity, established in 1959. We are a small team of five based in London.
Sound Seekers (The Commonwealth Society for the Deaf) delivers practical solutions to support people with hearing loss to realise their rights by enabling access to healthcare and education. We currently work in Malawi, Zambia, The Gambia, Cameroon and Sierra Leone.
An inclusive world where people with hearing loss have equal opportunities.
To support people with hearing loss realise their rights by enabling access to healthcare and education.
Hearing loss can be both a cause and effect of poverty. To combat this, we work to secure the future of people with hearing loss in some of the poorest communities of the developing world through our core values:
We integrate services into existing government systems and improving institutional capacity to ensure long-term impact on the lives of people with hearing loss.
We work with government agencies, hospitals and schools as well as local communities and donors.
We support participation and inclusion of children and adults with hearing loss and their families in school and community life.
We promote and raise awareness of the rights of people with hearing loss.
