2 in every 4 Deaf and disabled women are at risk of domestic abuse.
That’s why we set up DeafHope: the only sign language service for Deaf female victims.
Lynn Shannon, manager of DeafHope, explains that International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women “starts 16 days of action for the elimination of violence against women and girls.
“SignHealth are supporting this special day, and DeafHope will be continuing their prevention work, through delivering healthy relationship workshops to Deaf young people and raising awareness of domestic abuse within the Deaf community.”
Every year 750,000 children witness domestic abuse. We need your support to stop it.”
If you do not feel safe at home, if your partner verbally or physically abuses you, and you need advice about getting help, please contact DeafHope now.
