What We Do

We work to improve the
health and wellbeing
of Deaf people.

Every hour of the day, someone from SignHealth is working to improve the health and wellbeing of Deaf people.

Our work is varied and aims to promote easier access to healthcare and information. We partner with the NHS and other services and take on projects, carry out research, and raise awareness. 

We also deliver our own services to reach Deaf people in our shared language in their moment of need, through crisis textlines, domestic abuse support, therapy, advocacy and residential services. 

How healthy are Deaf people?

Sick Of It is SignHealth’s ground-breaking report uncovering the health disparity Deaf people face in the UK. Published in 2014, the report has influenced policy and changed practices in the NHS to improve communication and reduce barriers.
