Five million people of working age are deaf or have hearing loss or tinnitus, but we know very little about the support people are getting – or not getting – to help them in work, and the impact that this has. To find out more, we are asking people who are currently in work to complete this survey.

The survey asks questions to find out:

● what support, if any, you are receiving in the workplace and how this helps
● what support would be helpful in the workplace that you are not receiving.

Our findings will enable us to work with service providers and the government to improve the support services available for people who are deaf or have hearing loss or tinnitus in work.

The information you provide in this survey will be used for research purposes. Your responses are anonymous and you will not be identified in any reporting or publication of the results.

By completing each question in this survey, you consent to us using this information as described above. You can choose which questions you want to answer and do not want to answer.

The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete. Thank you for taking part.

If you have any questions about the survey or would like to complete the survey on paper, please email the research team at

We are also running focus groups for British Sign Language (BSL) users as part of this research. For more information visit
