Mark your calendars for the 20th of October, because the East Sussex Hearing Resource Centre outreach vehicle is going to be coming to Uckfield.

East Sussex Hearing Resource Centre is a registered charity working to improve the quality of life for deaf, deafened, deaf-blind and hard of hearing people in East Sussex. They’ve partnered with Adult Social Care to provide a free, mobile information and advice service.

Their bus is equipped to help deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people in East Sussex with  a range of queries. It’s accessible to wheelchair users and it’s manned by representatives from the East Sussex Hearing Resource Centre and Adult Social Care who can give advice and information on all aspects of hearing loss! They cover the whole county, visiting major towns and rural areas and they’ll be coming to Uckfield next month.

They’ll be parked just off Uckfield high street, outside Stratfield House on Southview Drive from 10:30AM to 3:30PM.
