Borrow to buy
We have partnered with Phonak to launch our new Borrow to Buy pilot scheme. This scheme offers deaf children, their families and the professionals working with them immediate access to Phonak products.
Each product can be borrowed for up to 90 days. At the end of the 90 day loan period you can choose to buy the product if you think it is of benefit, or you can simply return it to us if not.
Non-Phonak radio aids and other assistive technology products are still available through our Technology Test Drive.
