About the group

The group will hold the meetings in Earby. Earby is on the A56 at the county boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire. The group will be looking to support people from both Craven District and Pendle Borough, but everyone who is willing to travel to the meetings will be welcome. Presently we have members from as far as Keighley and Burnley attending.

The group also recognise that living with tinnitus can be an impact on partners and loved ones, we will welcome all people affected by tinnitus. As most people with tinnitus do their very best to lead a normal life including working for a living, meetings will be held in the evenings.

What the group offers

The group will be a “Peer Support Group” where we will be able to discuss living with Tinnitus. Looking at what we can do to alleviate the noise and pain of the condition. We will look in a non-commercial manner at equipment that is available discussing the benefits and pitfalls of such. We will look at measures that can be taken to avoid spikes and how to deal with such situations. Most of all we will support each other in dealing with this invisible affliction.

It is also hoped that once the group is established that we will be able to invite guest speakers to talk on relevant subjects, even if the speakers are via Teams or Skype.

We will not give medical advice at the meetings other than encouraging members to get what help is available from the NHS and other accredited bodies including Tinnitus UK

Where the group meets

The group will be meeting at the Earby Community Centre, this is the reason that the group is called “Earby Tinnitus Support Group”. Rather than trying to select a name to represent the area that it serves.

When the group meets

The Group meets every six to eight weeks, always on a Tuesday Evening at 7:15 pm either in the lounge or the activity room. Preferably the Lounge as this makes the meetings much less formal.

Meeting times and dates will be published on the Facebook Page or by e-mail once members opt to be on the mailing list. We ask people who do use Facebook to join the Facebook group for the latest information.

Additional information

Unfortunately, we do have to ask attendees to make a small contribution of £2.00 per meeting to cover the cost of the room and the annual affiliation fee to the Community Centre.

We are unable to provide tea and coffee at the meetings but you are more than welcome to bring your own non alcoholic drinks and if necessary there are takeaway drinks available at the Co-op that is close to the meeting rooms.
