Deaf Works Everywhere

Deaf Works Everywhere is our campaign to get more deaf young people into work – and into jobs that inspire them.

Deaf Works Everywhere

Many deaf young people believe their career options are limited. With the right support deaf people can work everywhere, yet they are twice as likely to be unemployed as their hearing peers. But deaf people can be musicians, doctors and electricians – the list is endless.

We’re fighting for better careers support, more work experience and volunteering opportunities, and challenging expectations of what deaf young people can achieve.

The Welsh translation of this page, Byddar yn Gweithio Mhobman, is available here.

About the film

The film and campaign name was created in partnership with deaf young people across the UK, to kick-start the conversation. This is their campaign. We would like to thank all of our deaf role models for appearing in the film, and the deaf cast and crew.

About the campaign

The campaign is taking place in the five stages below over the next 3 years.

Inspire young people

We’re holding workshops, creating a work experience programme and building a social media community to empower young people. Our young-person focussed YouTube and Instagram channels are now live.

  

Educate employers

In early 2021 we will be encouraging employers to hire their perfect candidate, regardless of their level of hearing, with tips on deaf awareness in the workplace and Access to Work.
