Did you know that 1 in 6 people in the UK are deaf or hard of hearing? That’s 11 million people living with some form of hearing loss in the UK alone, 50,000 of those being children. Deaf Awareness Week aims to raise awareness of the needs of those people, with national and local events taking place all over the UK. It is coordinated by the UK Council on Deafness, the national umbrella organisation for charities working in the field of deafness.

Deaf Awareness Week is used to promote the positive aspects of living with deafness, as well as raising awareness of the isolation that can be caused by deafness, and to promote social inclusion. It is also used to raise awareness of the many local organisations that support deaf people and their family and friends.

Deaf Awareness Week also promotes the use of British Sign Language (BSL), which is used by at least 24,000 people in the UK as their main language.

The theme of this year’s Deaf Awareness Week is ‘Coming Through it Together’ - “working with our members to continue to raise awareness more so now than ever and to ensure that we continue to campaign together whilst focusing on positivity going forward.”
