National Lottery Funding Brings Relief to Tinnitus Patients in the Southwest

Tinnitus UK have recently been awarded a £169,383 grant from the National Lottery (Reaching Communities) fund, which will be used to fund the development of tinnitus support groups in the Southwest of England. According to estimates, over 620,000 people in the region have tinnitus, with 7.6 million people in the UK affected overall, equating to one in seven adults.

Maisie Carscadden, Tinnitus UK Interim Head of Services, commented: “We identified a need in the region for increased local tinnitus support, which is why we are looking to engage with local communities to recruit, empower and support people with tinnitus to set up new support groups. Being with other people who have tinnitus, listening to their experiences and how they manage it, can be a huge help to those struggling with their tinnitus and we have seen the positive impact it can have, particularly for those who have recently been diagnosed. Our first task is to recruit a Regional Engagement Officer, who will be based in the Southwest and will be responsible for embedding themselves within the existing tinnitus community in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall.”

Tinnitus UK provides free support and resources to anyone affected by tinnitus, and works with healthcare professionals to ensure those living with the condition receive the right information to manage it. For more information, visit or contact the Tinnitus UK helpline on 0800 018 0527.
