Our shocking research results tell us:
- Half of you have at some point experienced teasing and mocking from your colleagues due to your deafness or hearing loss
- 54% of you have put off telling your employer about your hearing loss
- 35% of business leaders said they did not feel confident about their business employing a person with deafness or hearing loss.
Our Working for Change campaign aims to change this.
Over 1000 of you signed our petition calling for the Government to deliver on its promise to create a disability information hub for employers, so that businesses can better support the UK’s 5 million people of working age with deafness or hearing loss. Jeanann, a health professional and cochlear implant user, joined us in Westminster to hand in the petition to the Minister for Disabled People.
