Deaf Awareness Week 2019

6 – 12th May 2019


Deaf Awareness Week is a unique campaign in that so many different organisations participate, each able to promote their own work within the broad spectrum of deafness.

It is a fine example of so many organisations collaborating and working together in a joint campaign.


The UK Council on Deafness, founded in 1993 and the national umbrella organisation for charities and professional bodies working in the field of deafness, co-ordinates deaf awareness week which involves UK wide series of national and local events to raise awareness of the needs of the 1 in 6 deaf or hard of hearing people in the UK.   Deaf Awareness Week aims to promote the positive aspects of deafness, promote social inclusion and raise awareness of the huge range of local organisations that support deaf people and their family and friends.

A new range of posters are now available on our publicity page to download and add details of your event(s) for the week.


This year our theme for the week is ‘Celebrating Role Models’ and includes a theme for each day for organisations to publicise their role models throughout the week to raise awareness.
