      Are you deaf aware?

      One in six people is deaf or has hearing loss. How can we make communication easier?

      Every day, you’re likely to meet someone who is deaf or has some level of hearing loss. There are 11 million people affected in the UK, and they all face different communication challenges that can lead to frustration and loneliness. So, if you meet someone who is deaf or has hearing loss, ask them what you can do to make communication easier – don’t feel shy.

      Following some simple communication tips, learning more about British Sign Language and supporting deaf awareness in the workplace can help you make sure you don't unknowingly exclude anyone, or make their daily life more difficult.
