As a result of Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing measures, we've introduced online tinnitus support groups and many of our independent local support groups have taken their sessions online too. Accessible no matter where you are in the world, these groups offer flexible support with your tinnitus from the comfort of your own home.

Facilitated by experienced Support Group Leaders, BTA staff and/or hearing professionals, the meetings are scheduled on different days and at different times to offer a variety of options.
