HLF (Hørselshemmedes Landsforbund www.hlf.no) works in many ways. One field they work with is by influencing politicians and legislators or more commonly known as lobbying. One aspect of this political work, is to help the various systems understand and see where the problems are.
They publish a magazine. Work with the membership records to keep the organizational data up-to-date. Organize meetings for volunteering hearing-aids users that want to help other people who are just starting to use hearing aids. (“likemannsarbeid” – “common fellow work”)
HLF also runs a school (Briskeby) and holds several seminars and courses for people with hearing disabilities. They also aim at being Norways center for knowledge about – and to have high competence about – hearing-disabilities.
Tinnitus and Mèniére are also in the HLF’s sphere of interests.
In short: everyone who isn’t part of the deaf community, has a home at HLF.
