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

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
Deaf Works Everywhere will run until 2023 and works across England, Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland.
