Why is it important to raise awareness?

Young Deaf people miss out on important information about what domestic abuse is and the support networks available to victims. This can make young Deaf people more vulnerable throughout their lives.

At SignHealth, we believe it is time for a change. We are working towards a future where Deaf people of all ages can lead safe, healthy lives, with the same opportunities to meet their full potential.
