The AAG has an important role in ensuring that the views and experiences of deaf athletes from across the sporting community are included and represented at the highest level of UK Deaf Sport decision making.

The AAG will consist of 9 deaf athletes, including a Chair, from a range of recognised deaf sports including both team and individual sports. Each member of the group will be appointed for a 3-year term and will report to the UK Deaf Sport CEO and Board of Directors. The AAG Chair will also be invited to attend UK Deaf Sport Board meetings to represent the views of the AAG.
