Coronavirus update: UK lockdown – change to services

Following the government’s guidelines, Deaf Actions services are now not operational anymore, unless they are ‘essential’. This means that our social care at Slateford Green will continue to deliver their service, as well as our BSL interpreting duty service that is due for 24th March 2020. All other services are on hold until further notice.

Despite the closing of most of our services, our reception staff are still happy to take your call, reply to your email or answer your video call. Do not hesitate to get in touch!

If you need hearing aid batteries, please call/email Audiology. If you cannot reach them, please call our reception staff so that they can post batteries to you.

BSL courses will continue online.

Contact audiology for batteries:
