Due to the COVID-19 situation all routine appointments are cancelled for the foreseeable future.

However, if you require spares or repairs please phone, text or email on yais.helpline@bthft.nhs.uk and we will endeavor to help. Medical emergencies remain the same; ring the main YAIS number and we will help. There is information for an out of hours service on this number also.

How You Can Help

Our aim is to raise funds to provide equipment and expertise to maximise the effectiveness of the screening and support programmes. Your generosity can help us to help the deaf in many ways. For example, you could:

  • make gifts of toys which assist with testing – some cost as little as £15
  • help us purchase highly specialist equipment costing thousands of pounds
  • why not consider having the unit or a room named after you
  • you could sponsor a specific piece of equipment
  • or prepare a legacy
  • or simply help us with fundraising efforts and events.

How about a ‘Swishing Party’ ; Car boot sales ; join in one of the great runs ; sell trolly dollies.

This type of help has never been easier. The forms are simple to complete and the taxman can add 28% to whatever you contribute. Options include:

  • sending a gift of money
  • leaving money in your will
  • tax-effective giving of company shares
