News Garfield Weston Foundation grant We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a £50,000 grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation. This grant will contribute towards supporting the 7.1 million people in the UK who have tinnitus and help us to develop our services to keep up with the increasing demand. The past year has been an even more difficult one for many people with tinnitus. NHS services have been temporarily closed and it’s been harder to access GPs – but we’ve still been here making sure there’s someone to turn to for help and support. This funding from the Garfield Weston Foundation will help us continue our vital services including our free confidential helpline and webchat that helped almost 10,000 people last year and is on track to help even more this year. We’ll be able to carry on backing our 114 support groups so they can reach out to their members during this demanding time in the best way possible and to be ready for when they can meet in person again. We are also going to continue growing, with more online support groups and live webinars on understanding and managing tinnitus. We will give people hope that a cure can be found through our research programme and lobbying for increased funding for tinnitus research. David Stockdale, our Chief Executive said ‘We’re absolutely delighted the Garfield Weston Foundation are supporting us in a year that has seen even more people with tinnitus needing our help’.
