Notes to Editors
Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing a sound when there is no external source for that sound. Someone with tinnitus may hear ringing, buzzing, hissing, whistling or other noises. Tinnitus can be there all the time or come and go. The volume of someone’s tinnitus can vary from one episode to the next.
Tinnitus comes in many types, but Tinnitus UK is here for everyone living with tinnitus.
We are striving for a world where no one suffers with tinnitus.
That’s why we provide free support to anyone with tinnitus or caring for someone with tinnitus.
That’s why we are leading the charge for more investment in tinnitus research.
That’s why we are connecting the research community to people living with tinnitus to ensure those searching for new treatments and a cure understand the impact of tinnitus on everyday lives.
That’s why we work with healthcare professionals to ensure you receive the right information to manage your tinnitus.
For every seven adults in the UK, one will have tinnitus. Think about that the next time you’re in the supermarket, on the bus, or walking down the street. Tinnitus affects 7.6 million people in the UK – with 1.5 million of them having severe tinnitus.
To everyone living with tinnitus our message is clear – your struggle is our cause.
