DeafHope – supporting the Deaf Community

DeafHope is the UK’s only sign-language based service to help Deaf people who suffer from domestic abuse. When sign language is the main way you communicate, it can be very hard to get help.  We communicate with our clients in British Sign Language or offer interpreters for those who can’t sign to offer support and advice and to find refuges and emergency accommodation for them if needed.   
Our staff are trained in International sign and are experienced in communicating with Deaf clients who are from overseas where neither English nor BSL is their first language or a language they know very well. 
We offer support and advice through our IDVAs, children and families workers, Young DeafHope team and through signposting. DeafHope now covers London, Kent and Sussex. 
We support all genders, sexualities, cultural background and religion.

Young DeafHope is a unique project working with young deaf people to raise awareness of abuse and domestic violence. Young DeafHope gives young people the knowledge, skills and confidence to develop healthy relationships and to be safe. Young DeafHope is aimed at keeping young deaf people safe and is aimed at deaf people aged between 11 and 25.
