About Us

The Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People (CfD) is a Bristol-based charity that has been operating for over 145 years. The majority of our staff and trustees are deaf or hard of hearing themselves, and we fully understand the impact of living with hearing loss. We can share experiences and provide practical information and advice on dealing with the challenges hearing loss brings.

At CfD we’re here for all deaf and hard of hearing people, as well as their friends and families. As part of our mission to create fair access, we opened this online shop in 2020.

15% of sales from this website are donated to CFD’s charitable work. 

The shop is run on CfD's behalf by our commercial partner, Sarabec – a trusted, well established, specialist provider of products for hard of hearing people. Sarabec is based in Middlesborough.

Every purchase from this shop helps the charity financially, while the products themselves will aid the user’s independence and day to day living. And there are many other good reasons to buy from us.

Together, CfD and Sarabec offer 90 years of experience and unique combined expertise, helping deaf and hard of hearing people choose the best equipment for them.

The CfD team continues to explore new and innovative ways to overcome communication barriers, and to make these solutions available to deaf and hard of hearing people.
