Deaf Awareness Week Press Release 2020 [pdf]

UK Council on Deafness supplies a Press Release 2020 which you can download and you can add your own organisation’s contact details.  TV and radio stations, local and national newspapers and magazines are more likely to respond to stories about deaf issues during Deaf Awareness Week. This is a great opportunity for your organisation to benefit from the extra attention from the media and you can use it to fundraise and talk about the main services that your organisation can offer.

Even with our current lockdown status, perhaps you are holding a fundraising event during Deaf Awareness Week, (adhering to all safety measures of course and social distancing) and would like to contribute to our Deaf Awareness Campaign – you can Donate hereor if your organisation or someone wishes to donate with a cheque, please make it payable to UK Council on Deafness and post to our registered address UKCoD, c/o Griffin Chapman, 4-5 The Cedars, Apex 12, Old Ipswich Road, Colchester CO7 7QR.

Our work is important as accessibility, equality and inclusion are the cornerstones of our work with Deaf, Hard of Hearing, deafened and Deafblind people throughout the UK.
