Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity and centre of excellence in training hearing dogs to alert deaf people to everyday household sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings.
Hearing Dogs started at the world famous Crufts dog show in 1982. Since then they have created over 1,600 life-changing partnerships between deaf people and hearing dogs in the UK, thus developing over 750 working partnerships in the country.
The charity trains hearing dogs to warn deaf children and adults when important household sounds and danger signals happen. The dogs are trained to react to the sounds of the alarm clock, doorbell, telephone and smoke alarm - providing independence, confidence and valuable companionship.
The charity trains a small number of Labrador crosses and Cocker crosses alongside Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Cocker Spaniels, Miniature Poodles and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels to make sure that they have the right dog to match each of their applicants.
It takes approximatively18 months to train a hearing dog, consisting of puppy socialisation training with volunteers before moving onto sound work training at one of their two Training Centres.
During this period a suitable recipient for each dog is identified.
Deafness can be a very isolating disability and a hearing dog can offer a life-transforming alternative to technical equipment with the added benefit of providing people greater independence, increased confidence, companionship and a feeling of security.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
