Deaf Awareness Week 2022

Deaf Awareness Week. What does Deaf inclusion mean?

Deaf Awareness Week is run on an annual basis by the UK Council on Deafness, it will be taking place between 2nd – 8th May 2022. The theme for Deaf awareness week 2022 is Deaf Inclusion, to explore the entire theme of inclusion within our community. Inclusion Deafness is a chance to highlight Deaf people's access to services within the community and how underrepresented groups are often ignored, are invisible or are unable to access vital support within the community and how we can all take a part in changing this.

The aim of the campaign is to highlight the impact of hearing loss on everyday life and increase visibility and inclusion of Deaf people. Emphasising the importance of mental health, and empathising with underrepresented groups amongst Deaf such as migrants, BMIs, and women, as well as raise pertinent issues of deafness being overlooked in education, health settings and the workplace.
