Did you know that hearing loss is the single biggest disability group across all disabilities? With an estimated 10 million people in the UK who are deaf or hard of hearing. Despite this huge population, funding to support deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK to enjoy and excel in sport is still massively unequal. For expample only 0.19% of disability talent funding is targeted at Deaf peoples provision.

UK Deaf Sport is working tirelessly to develop more opportunities across the UK at a local community level to ensure that Deaf and hard of hearing people can access the benefits of Sport and a Healthy Lifestyle. But we can not do it alone

Without the support and generosity of people like you we simple could not achieve our goal of ”More people reaching their full potential through sport”. Your Support will enable us to

  • Train coaches in local clubs so that a deaf person does not feel isolated and can learn to play sports that they enjoy
  • Educate organisation on the simple changes they need to make to become DEAFinitely Inclusive
  • To develop role models that can inspire a nation of deaf people to show that they too can achieve through sport
  • To work with deaf people to help them develop there confidence and self esteem and to realise how much they have to give
  • And to support people to achieve there dream of living and enjoying sport without barriers
