Why should we care about spreading awareness of deafness?
Well - you may be surprised to hear (pun intended!) that there are more than 11 million people in the UK with some form of hearing loss. Yes - that's right , 1 in 6 people !
Sign for Thoughts is passionate about raising awareness about deafness and improving communication between hearing and Deaf people whether they be neighbours, customers, work colleagues or friends.
In fact our motto is "breaking down communication barriers so that lifelong friendships can be made"
We are excited about our partnership with an amazing local charity CSSEF who absolutely share our determination and dedication to improving deaf awareness in the local community and improving the lives of Deaf children across the area.
