About the group

The New Forest Tinnitus Group has been supporting people who experience tinnitus or hyperacusis, their families and friends since 2008. This volunteer run group provides a relaxed, friendly environment to find out more about tinnitus and hyperacusis, coping strategies and to meet other people who experience it. We are a non-profit community organisation, affiliated with the British Tinnitus Association and supported by a local audiologist, therefore we provide unbiased expert insights.

There is no formal membership, simply a £3 fee. Guest speakers present at each meeting and there are plenty of opportunities to share your own or learn from other’s tinnitus experiences.
