Deaf awareness

Watch this page in BSL

12 million adults in the UK are deaf or have hearing loss. We can all play our part to be more deaf aware, both at work and in daily life.

If you are deaf or have hearing loss, we have some tips you can use to help people better understand your communication needs.

Becoming deaf aware

Being deaf aware this festive season

A lot of us spend more time with families and friends over the festive season. Help everyone feel welcome by being more deaf aware.

Communication tools for people with hearing loss

If hearing loss is new to you then these tips are designed to make people aware and your preferred communication style.

Help us fight the stigma

“I really hope there’s a time when we relate to each other by our similarities rather than our differences” – Rachel. £50 could help provide a workplace assessment for someone with hearing loss. Can you help us fight the stigma?
