For the past seven years we’ve celebrated Deaf Awareness Week (DAW) in North Somerset with the deaf community and a wide range of organisations, voluntary groups and local schools.
2 - 8 May 2022
This years DAW will focus on 'Inclusion Deafness' and explore the entire theme of inclusion within our community. We will highlight:
- the impact of hearing loss on everyday life
- importance of mental health in deaf
- increase visibility and inclusion of underrepresented groups amongst deaf such as migrants, black, Asian, minority ethnic people and women
- raise relevant issues of deafness being overlooked within education and the workplace
