CI High Five (UK):

This voluntary group is setup to support cochlear implant (CI) candidates and users across Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Birmingham and London.
Meetings are held Oxford, London, Reading, Birmingham and St Albans.

Breaking News – see letter from Anne Ryan about developments for 2018.

Future meeting this year will be held on  17 November and 8 December 2018.

The socials are informal and friendly with people that understand about hearing loss and the challenges it presents in everyday life.
Venues will have minimal background noise to aid better hearing and also close to transport links e.g. train and bus stations plus car parking.
Partners, parents of CI children and friends of CI users or candidates are very welcome as well as people with a wide variety of backgrounds – whether you are born deaf, late deafened, sign, don’t sign or a bit of both.

Plenty of on site parking. The pub is an 11 minute walk from Southampton University CI Centre or a 2 mile drive. Approximately 10 minute drive from the centre of Southampton.
Bus numbers; U2B and U2 run from Southampton Central (check and allow plenty of time to find the right stops…) and getting off at Furzedown Rd is around the corner from the Brewhouse & Kitchen pub and is then just a 3 minute walk (see maps on our Facebook Events page).  Bus W1 can be caught a bit further away from Southampton Central but stops right outside the pub.
