Deaf Led Services is a Deaf-led rural advocacy, peer support and information service giving 1,200 Deaf people with British Sign Language better access to services. The project idea was developed by and with the Devon Deaf Community and it is run by Deaf staff. The aim of the project is to reduce isolation, enable Deaf people to have their views heard, secure their human rights, represent their interests and access services that they have not previously used. The fact that the project is delivered by Deaf people means Deaf people can see role models working to increase their choices and control. It also demonstrates to hearing people that Deaf people are very capable and able to deliver good services.
Living Options Devon is a well respected user-led organisation which works to ensure that people with disabilities and Deaf people can live the life they choose. Set up in 1990 LOD is a registered charity (Charity N0. 1102489) and a company limited by guarantee (No. 4925281). Based in Exeter and Barnstaple, our charitable aims mean we we can offer services across the South West and share good practice throughout the UK. Being led and run by people with disabilities and Deaf people ensures LOD has first hand knowledge and understanding of the issues facing service users and so is very well placed to increase the influence and voice of Deaf and disabled people. We do this by providing education, training and services which enable people to live the lives they choose.
