Supporting Deafblind Awareness Week

Deafblindness is far more common than many people realise. Around 400,000 people are affected by sight and hearing loss in the UK, which affects everyone differently. Some might need to adjust the settings on their TV or turn up the volume on their phone, and others may need assistance dogs, canes, and more formal care.

During Deafblind Awareness Week (27 June to 3 July), Deafblind UK is showing that everyone experiences deafblindness in different ways. Visit their Youtube channel to find out how different people are affected by it.

Help spread the word this Deafblind Awareness Week by sharing these videos on social media or even just telling a friend about it!

You can also download the Deafblind Awareness Week logo, social media graphics and email signature.

If you are lost for words, then you can use this text for your posts:

I’m supporting Deafblind Awareness Week by helping more people learn about sight and hearing loss! Find out more on the Deafblind UK website.

Remember to use the hashtag #DeafblindAwarenessWeek in all your posts!

If social media is not really your thing, you can always stick to the old-fashioned way of showing support, by donating to support Deafblind UK.

It’s important for us all to recognise the signs of sight and hearing impairments in ourselves and in our friends and family and to understand that support is available if we need it. Read more about recognising early signs of deafblindness and the symptoms of deafblindness.
