Deaf Awareness Week

This week is Deaf Awareness Week and this year is being used to celebrate deafness!

Did you know that 1 in 5 adults in the UK is deaf or has hearing loss? There are also over 50,000 deaf children and young people in the UK and some of those will be sharing their stories this week using the hashtag #MyDeafStory.

If you would like to know more about how you can communicate easier for someone who is deaf or has hearing loss there are a number of sites you can use:
