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

DEAFvibe Awareness Courses include BSL Courses, Lipreading Classes and Deaf Awareness Courses. More courses will be avalable in 2015.

This is an initiative to generate income for DEAFvibe and give participants regular chances to win some cash prizes.

There will be 12 monthly draws and the cash prizes will increase as the membership increases. I am sure the winners will be pleased with their winnings.
