CDA Hearing Help – Hearing Aid Maintenance Centres

Back to Support

CDA Hearing Help is part of Cambridgeshire Deaf Association. They run free NHS Hearing Aid Maintenance centres across the county where they can clean and re-tube NHS hearing aids, supply new batteries, and offer information and advice about hearing loss.

What to expect

There are monthly drop-in sessions at various locations across Cambridgeshire. In East Cambs these are held in Ely Library, Soham Library and Littleport Village Hall. Visit the CDA website for details of locations and timings.

There is no need to book an appointment – just go along. All of the venues are accessible and there will be signage directing you to the session.

You can expect to receive support from a passionate and caring team of staff and volunteers, many of whom have shared experience of hearing loss. They are able to clean and re-tube your hearing aid and give you replacement hearing aid batteries, as well as offer more general support and advice around hearing loss. It’s free to attend the sessions and there is no fee for any of the services.

The team are keen to recruit more volunteers to help with these sessions. It would only require a commitment of two hours per month. To express interest or find out more about the role email [email protected].
