We are concerned that the growing use of masks and other facial coverings is making life harder for people with hearing loss and deafness. What do you think? Are they blocking more than germs?

We have created a short survey to capture feedback on your feelings about masks and any experience you may have had of speaking with people who are wearing a mask. The survey also asks about other communication impacts that coronavirus may have had.

Deadline is midday, Thursday, 30 April. 

Our survey comes at a time when the UK Government is assessing whether COVID-19 is having an unequal impact on particular groups of the population. This survey will help to assess the impact on people with hearing loss and deafness.

We will share the survey results here, on our Twitter feed (@IdeasForEars) and in our next email update.

Complete the short survey by midday 30/04/20
