Celebrate Deaf Awareness Week 2021
This year, the theme is ‘Coming through it together’, highlighting the hardships from the past year, and looking forward to a brighter future. The pandemic has heightened communication barriers for BSL and lipreading users which is why we are challenging everyone to #SignForDeafAction.
The aim of the challenge is to increase deaf awareness and have a bit of fun by bringing people together. We want people to know that something as simple as learning your name in BSL can make a difference and can promote inclusion.
So how does it work?
It’s simple. We are challenging anyone and everyone to;
