Deaf Awareness Week: 6th-12th May 2019

Today marks the start of Deaf Awareness Week, which will run until the 12th May.

Organised by the UK Council on Deafness, the week is an opportunity to raise awareness of hearing loss to the wider public.

Look out our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) and those for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People for inspiring stories and facts which you can share amongst your networks.

Deaf Awareness Week is not only a chance to raise awareness of the challenges of living with hearing loss, but an opportunity to show that you can live well with your hearing.

You can also let us know what you are doing for Deaf Awareness Week by emailing our social media team or by sharing your events on our Facebook wall.
