UK Children's’ Radio Aid Group

The UK Children's Radio Aid Working Group (formerly the FM working group) came into being in 2004 and is made up of professionals from Education, Health, Academia Charities and Manufacturers with specific interest in hearing-impaired children.  They meet twice a year.  The Group’s principal aims are:

  • to promote the use of radio aid systems among children and young people
  • to promote the knowledge base about radio aids
  • to influence the policy framework for the provision of radio aids
  • to influence the quality and consistency of radio aid provision and practice
  • to raise awareness of the importance of a positive acoustic environment.

The UK Children's Radio Aid Working Group is a useful website - the home of the Quality Standards and the Good Practice Guide for radio aids.
