Deaf awareness

One in six people is deaf or has hearing loss. How can we make communication easier?

Every day, you’re likely to meet someone who is deaf or has some level of hearing loss. There are 12 million people affected in the UK, and they all face different communication challenges that can lead to frustration and loneliness. So, if you meet someone who is deaf or has hearing loss, ask them what you can do to make communication easier – don’t feel shy.
