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

We would appreciate you taking time to fill in the survey with your honest opinions, likes and dislikes. It is completely anonymous and the results will be analysed to help DEAFvibe deliver the best service we can.
