 All D/deaf, deafblind and Hard-of-Hearing people and their families are welcome.

Our Health Forum is on a Saturday morning every two months in Brunswick Methodist Church Hall, Brunswick Place, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 7BJ. Which is behind Fenwicks and Waterstones in Newcastle City Centre - click on the map for a larger view.

We have presentations by service providers e.g. NHS, allowing members to learn more about services which they can use. This also allows service providers to consider how they can improve their services through listening to members’ experiences, issues, barriers and suggestions.

All our meetings are accessible with; BSL/ English Interpreters, Speech-to-text reporter, loop system and other visual presentations with aids/pictures/photos to increase our D/deaf, deafblind and hard-of-hearing members’ knowledge about important topics linked to Health and Wellbeing.

Topics we have covered in 2015 like NRCPD, 2 'Politics' forums and NDCS.

Details and dates of our future Forums can be found in our latest Events List  or by checking out our events page above.

Please contact us for any questions.
