About this event
Deaf awareness week is all about promoting the positive aspects of living with deafness. This events 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 event also raises awareness of British Sign Language (BSL), which is a language used by many people in the UK who are born deaf.
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.
