Enabling Deaf Spaces

The UN Convention of Rights for Persons with Disabilities details the  rights held by Deaf people who use sign language as their preferred method of communication. 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. However, it outlines the lack of strategic focus that has resulted with a slow progression to improve the quality of Deaf people’s lives.
