An estimated 7,100 people live with the condition in Lowestoft and the surrounding area with 700 people finding the condition has a significant effect on their daily lives.

The first meeting will take place on Friday, April 20, at Lowestoft and District Deaf Society, Blackheath Road in the town from 12.15 to 2pm.

It is organised by Linda Parker and Fiona Savill in co-operation with the British Tinnitus Association, an independent charity which supports tinnitus sufferers.

Ms Savill said: 'This is something that we have talked about having for a long time and are excited at the possibility of getting this up and running for the people of Lowestoft. and helping support their needs.'
