Monday Social Group

The Monday Social Group meets every Monday from 10am to 1pm and is open to people with all types of hearing loss to come together to socialise, gain information, play games or simply have lunch and a chat. The group meet at the same time as some of the drop-in services available at NDS so members are able to access those services as well.

There is a support worker available when the group is open to assist members with any enquiries about health and any worries they have and can make referrals to other agencies if needed. She also sets up talks from outside agencies such as Age UK, City Transport, Macmillan, Pain Management, etc.
