Campaigns - England
How you can campaign with us
We want young deaf people and their families to be able to able to access the same opportunities as everyone anyone else. Your actions are what enable us to push for change and get the voices of deaf children and families heard by politicians. Without you behind us, we would not be able to do this at all.
There are lots of different campaigns you can get involved in and a range of different actions you can take to influence politicians:
- Join our Campaigns Network. Be part of a movement of over 10,000 people for deaf children and their families.
- Email your MP today to demand immediate action for more Teachers of the Deaf
- Sign the open letter started by Shikha and Juliet, two parents of deaf children, for more Teachers of the Deaf.
- Share your story with us to inform and shape our campaigns. We are interested in your story whether you are deaf or hearing to help us understand the barriers holding deaf young people back.
- You could write a blog, record a video or take part in an event to help share your views with those in power – email us now to get involved.
