Welcome to CDA Hearing Help, part of Cambridgeshire Deaf Association

We have been delivering services for local Cambridgeshire people, with hearing loss since 1978.  Originally, provided under the name of CAMTAD and then later Cambridgeshire Hearing Help CIO.

On 1st April 2022 Cambridgeshire Hearing Help transferred to Cambridgeshire Deaf Association who continue to sustain the original mission of reducing the impact of hearing loss on people’s lives across Cambridgeshire.

Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers provide hearing aid maintenance and battery supply throughout Cambridgeshire.

For more information about the merger, please visit CDA’s website.

Your hearing aid will need maintenance every 3 months if you have a mould or every 6 months if you have an open fit hearing aid.

There is no need to make an appointment.  All our sessions are drop-in sessions so please just turn up.

For batteries also please just turn up.

Our postal battery service no longer available.
