DAW Poster 2021This week (3 - 9 May) is Deaf Awareness Week. This year's theme is about ‘Coming Through it Together’. It's an opportunity to celebrate Deafness, raise awareness of best practice and for demonstrating change and positivity.

  • Raise awareness
  • Improve access to education, health, social care and employment
  • Ensure people have the accessible information they need
  • Advocate and inform government and the public at large about Deafness and hearing loss
  • Raise awareness about the importance of embracing and recognising language and culture
  • Raise awareness about preventing hearing loss
  • Improve the quality of services for people who are Deaf or have a hearing loss
