The British Tinnitus Association strives to be the primary source of support and information for people with tinnitus and their carers in the UK and to advocate on their behalf.
We aim to encourage prevention through our educational programme and to seek effective management of tinnitus through a medical research programme.
How we help
The BTA works to help individuals with tinnitus and the wider public understand more about tinnitus, coping strategies and raising awareness amongst the general public. It does this via:
- a confidential freephone helpline - 0800 018 0527
- over 25 information leaflets for adults and children, written by leading medical professionals, that are distributed free of charge
- Quiet, the BTA’s quarterly magazine
- this website, containing information and advice for all audiences
- attending awareness raising events across the UK
The BTA also works with medical professionals to support medical and clinical research and supports professionals to gain the skills and understanding of tinnitus to treat patients. The BTA achieves this through:
- running Tinnitus Adviser Training and All About Tinnitus courses
- our Annual Conference, the only purely tinnitus related conference held in the UK
- providing a bursary scheme for professionals to attend tinnitus related training
- funding medical research into tinnitus
