Deaf Awareness Week

Deaf Awareness Week 2022 took place from 2 to 8 May. This year we used the week to celebrate deafness.

Deaf Awareness Week  may be over for 2022, but you can still watch deaf children and young people share their stories

There are over 50,000 deaf children and young people in the UK, and we’ve asked some of them to share their deaf story during deaf awareness week.

Watch the video above to find out what they love about being deaf, what being deaf means to them, and what might surprise people about being deaf.

By sharing their stories, we aim to empower and inspire other deaf children and young people to celebrate their deaf identity and feel confident with their deafness.

Find out more about deafness

Throughout Deaf Awareness Week, we shared lots about deafness, including information on:

And inspiring stories from deaf role models across the UK.
