DeafHope is the UK's only sign-language based service to help deaf people who have experienced or are experiencing domestic abuse. Deaf women are twice at risk of domestic abuse than hearing women. When sign language is the main way you communicate it can be very hard to get help. We offer a variety of support and advice through many variations. We support all Deaf people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.
DeafHope now covers London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

DeafHope is now on twitter: @deafhopeuk and Facebook: DeafHope. So please follow us for regular updates on our services.
If you would like to learn more about DeafHope, domestic violence and the Deaf community, we can arrange workshops for people to attend. This can also be in-house training for full or half days where we can also deliver presentations to any groups both Deaf & hearing.
As part of our prevention work, our Young DeafHope team deliver workshops to young Deaf individuals on varying topics such as:
Healthy Relationships, Anti-bullying, Forced Marriage & Honor Based Violence, Sexting/Cyber Bullying and sex education. Our materials are created and adapted specifically for our workshops and our Deaf clients so they are accessible.
Our next survivor workshop sessions are approaching in September. If you know anybody who will benefit from a 7 week course to build confidence, share similar experiences, and to learn to be a stronger, more independent individual than please let us know.
If you would like any more information please do not hesitate to make contact.
