Thank you so much for signing the ‘Therapy, the Deaf Way’ petition. You have supported Deaf people’s right to equal access to psychological therapy services. And you have told Jeremy Hunt he needs to fix this problem.
We just wanted to let you know that, thanks to you, we have reached our initial target in record time! More than 1,300 people have signed the petition. This is fantastic. It means it will be difficult for the Government to ignore the campaign.
Recently we met politicians in Westminster, to prepare for the next stage of the campaign. We now have the support of the shadow health minister, Luciana Berger MP. The more people who get behind the campaign the better.
And you can still help! If you have not already told your friends about the campaign then tell them now. We want that petition to be even bigger.
We will contact you again when there is more important news. In the meantime, if you want to see what is happening, keep an eye on the website.
Celia and Paul
