Deaf Awareness Week

Deaf Awareness Week 2020 



When is Deaf Awareness Week?

Deaf Awareness Week will take place between 4th-10th May. Deafness and hearing loss can mean different things to different people. People use various words and terms to describe how they view their own deafness or hearing loss.

Aims of Deaf Awareness Week

Deaf Awareness Week is all about promoting the positive aspects of living with deafness. This event aims to raise awareness of the isolation that deaf people can occasionally experience, and promote the importance of social inclusion around the deaf community. 

The UK Council on Deafness wants to celebrate all of the amazing local organisations around the UK that support deaf people and their families and friends during Deaf Awareness Week.
