Shining a light on Employment, Education and Wellbeing in the Deaf Community

February 12, 2020

A press release:
“The Deaf Community needs inspiration and aspiration from within and without to make meaningful and long-lasting change”, according to Abdi Gas, founder of Deaf Unity, a leading Deaf charity.

Deaf pupils in England are struggling ‘at every stage of their education‘ according to the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS). Furthermore, government reporting in 2017 found that only ‘65% of working age deaf people are in employment, compared to 79% of the general population’. The true impact of these statistics on Deaf people’s wellbeing is clear; with mental health concerns affecting ‘up to 50%, compared to 35% for the general population.’ Something needs to be done.

This is where the Deaf Future Conference 2020 comes in.
