Events we’re attending this Deaf Awareness Week

Next Monday marks the beginning of Deaf Awareness Week 2024 and it is a busy week for our charity!

From 6th-12th May, there will be events up and down the country to mark the occasion. They aim to spread awareness of hearing loss, as well as educate people on all the different forms of support that are available.
