Our Aim...

DEAFvibe aims to support people with a hearing loss as well as their families, friends and carers in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. 

It is DEAFvibe’s belief that all deaf people should be treated equally and with respect, that access to information & communication is provided without barriers or prejudice, promoting equal participation and opportunities in life.

Communication whether it be written, verbal or through visual information is a vital need to have a sense of belonging in society.

Why DEAFvibe?...

DEAF includes those who are Deaf, Deafened, Hard of Hearing and Deafblind.

VIBE links in with what having a hearing loss means:

  • the feeling of sound through vibration;
  • picking up on vibes through visual clues;
  • the sharing of experiences of knowing what it is like to be deaf.  

DEAFvibe’s philosophy is “Deafness = Equality & Access = Fairness
