Deaflink is an organisation based in Newcastle we are a Charity and a Company (Limited by Guarantee). Deaflink is made up of some paid staff, a Board of Trustees and a Community Action Group who all have a variety of levels of D/deaf, deafblind and Hard-of-Hearing.
We provide opportunities for D/deaf people to meet and to learn through our forums and groups. We provide information in accessible ways. We will also try and help and support people who are having difficulties accessing services or their rights.
We believe in:
- Equal access to information
- Equal access to life chances in health education and employment opportunities
- All services and their staff have D/deaf awareness
- The same social opportunities
We are all working together to help people understand how deafness affects people and what we can all do to make hearing people more aware of the barriers.
