The aim of the project is to empower Deaf people and improve their confidence to share their views, with opportunities to engage with service providers.

Events:

Search for 'Devon - Deaf Together' on Facebook to join our group!

We hope to bring Deaf people together to reduce isolation by arranging peer support. We also make connections between the Deaf community and a wide range of service providers and private organisations, so that Deaf people can share their views about services which will hopefully bring changes to meet the needs of the Deaf community. Our volunteers help us collect feedback from the Deaf community about different services in the hope of improving their accessibility and awareness of Deaf people’s needs.

We also provide training to support people to run and contribute to the forums, for example training in public speaking. Check our Coming Soon Events list for training dates. If you are interested in supporting this project by volunteering or attending a forum, please contact us by emailing kristy.cooper@livingoptions.org

Since 2016 these services have been to Deaf Together meetings:
