DeafHope

Overview

SignHealth is a charity dedicated to making sure Deaf people get the same sort of access as hearing people to healthcare and health information.

DeafHope and Young DeafHope are part of the charity SignHealth.  They provide a sign-language based service to help deaf women, and their children, who suffer from domestic violence and abuse.  Deaf women are more at risk of domestic abuse than hearing women.

They provide practical and emotional support, and they help to find women and their children a safe place to stay, and then give the help needed to rebuild their lives and regain confidence.  Abuse is never right, and never the victim’s fault, so women do not need to put up with it.

Young DeafHope is a unique project working with young Deaf people of eleven years and older (boys & girls), to raise awareness of abuse and domestic violence.  The aim is to help young people change or avoid abusive behaviour, and to help them to have healthy relationships and stay safe.

Domestic abuse is any kind of violence or ill-treatment from family members, partners, ex-partners or carers. Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, but you do not have to put up with it. It is your right to live free from fear of harm.

Young Deafhope gives young people the knowledge, skills and confidence to develop healthy relationships.
