Since 2007, Health Deafinitions has worked with our community to understand and solve Deaf health inequalities. We have toured the country with sample of our visual, BSL health education videos. These videos were loved by the Deaf community, who said they needed information in this accessible format.
We work with local government and the NHS to try to change health services for the community, and hope to give voice to the many health inequalities we face. We are based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and offer opportunities for involvement, engagement and volunteering. As a Deaf-led organisation we employ a majority of Deaf people and continue to work with the community.
