Research project looking for men over 65 with hearing loss

Are you a man 65 years and over?

Are you affected by hearing loss?

How do you stay connected to others?

How do you keep friendships in later life?

What advice could you give to other men about tackling loneliness?

We’d like to hear from you if you are interested in talking to us about loneliness and staying connected to others in later life. We are seeking to interview men (65+) who have experienced hearing loss – this could be any degree of hearing loss which you feel has affected your day-to-day life.

If you are interested in taking part in a one-off research interview please contact us. We can travel to you and meet at a time convenient to you. We offer a £20 store voucher to say thanks.

Through this project we want to better understand the formal and informal ways in which older men (65+ years) maintain social connections in later life and combat loneliness.

Please contact for us for more information:
