About this organisation

Our vision is a world without barriers to good health and wellbeing for Deaf people.

Deaf people continue to face barriers in mainstream health and social care services. Since 1986 we have been providing services to the Deaf community and campaigning for more Deaf-awareness and better access.

Our work is varied and we partner with the NHS and other services and take on projects, carry out research, and raise awareness.

We also deliver our own services to reach Deaf people in our shared language in their time of need, through a crisis text service, domestic abuse support, therapy, advocacy and residential services.

The majority of our 130 staff are Deaf people and our award winning board has been recognised for its diversity and inclusivity. Together we are working to improve health and wellbeing for everyone.

During the Covid-19 pandemic we committed to making sure that vital information was available in British Sign Language.
