As Regional Information Coordinator you will be responsible for delivering a range of information activities including talks, presentations and information stands, to provide information to older people with hearing loss and other key audiences in the community.

You will also have a key role in managing the team of volunteers supporting the HTIAC project, ensuring all volunteers are developed, trained and motivated to provide high quality outreach information services. As a core member of the project team, you will support the development of delivery plans for the project in London and South East England, with a particular focus on building collaborative networks with local community groups and organisations who will be involved in and supported by the project.

In 2017, we were awarded £1 million by the Big Lottery fund to expand our face-to-face volunteer led information services across London and South East England, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Thanks to this award we developed the Hear to Inform and Connect project (HTIAC) and are empowering and increasing the number of older people who take action to manage their hearing loss.

Communication is a basic human need. Yet most of us know someone who struggles to communicate through hearing loss. It can cause substantial harm to friendships, family relationships, confidence, employability, mental health and life chances.

Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID) is the UK’s largest charity for the 11 million people in the UK who confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss every day. Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way. We give people support and care, develop technology and treatments, and campaign for equality.
