My name is Herwin and I work for RNID (the Royal National Institute for Deaf People), the largest charity working to change the world for the UKís 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people. We do this by campaigning and lobbying, raising awareness of deafness and hearing loss, providing services and through social, medical and technical research.
At the moment RNID is running a campaign called 'Don't lose the Music' which aims to highlight the risks to hearing from over-exposure to loud music in nightclubs, at gigs/concerts and from using MP3 players and other personal stereos. The campaign is aimed at 16 to 30 year old music fans and you can find more information on our website www.dontlosethemusic.com
I'm putting this on the forum because as part of the campaign we are looking for 16 to 30 year olds who can spare 90 minutes to share their opinions about music and hearing in a group of 6-8 people. There are several sessions. We'll pay £20 to everyone who takes part and sessions will take place from 6pm to 7.30pm.
