Today Deaf Direct are supporting role models in Family/Youth during Deaf Awareness Week.
Deaf Direct is a local charitable company that has worked with and for deaf and hard of hearing people since 1927. We provide a wide range of services to deaf and hard of hearing people, family members and carers, and professionals and other organisations in Herefordshire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire and surrounding areas.
As a deaf-led registered charitable company we are independent of the statutory sector and able to fully advocate for local needs. All our activities are undertaken to further our charitable purposes for the public benefit.
Deaf Direct services include: communication interpreting, community outreach, information & advice, youth & families as well as running three centres in Oxford, Worcester and Hereford.
We have this excellent support for Deaf & Hard of Hearing Children and their families through activities and residential breaks to ensure that their deafness is not a barrier to their family life and at the same time allow for a child peer support and group identity.
