This report examines the health and wellbeing of the Deaf community in Brighton and Hove city. It aims to identify gaps in services, led by public or third sectors, in order to increase opportunities for Deaf people and their families. The report explores the historical legacy in the city whilst bringing the discussion to the 21st century. It examines the specialist and mainstream provisions supported by effective community engagement.
