News Foundation supports confidential helpline We are thrilled to announce that the Woodroffe Benton Foundation have awarded us a grant of £22,500 so we can continue to support people with tinnitus via our free and confidential national helpline. This will go towards funding Tinnitus Support Advisers, so we can keep pace with increasing demand. Calls to our helpline have gone up by by 143% in the last year. This surge is not expected to drop, with tinnitus now recognised as an effect of long Covid. Our advisers offer support, reassurance and information to people struggling with tinnitus. They also train and support our dedicated team of volunteer helpline advisers. We are deeply grateful for the Foundation’s support. It means that we can continue to be there for people when they really need us.
