Our Social Policy Work - Supporting Deaf and Disabled people to speak up! 

Our Policy and Strategy service enables Deaf and Disabled people to speak up and make change happen on a local level. Our social policy work is evidence based and integrated with all our services. Last year we spent over 1000 hours on policy work and responded to 18 consultations on behalf of Deaf and Disabled People. Our 2018-23 strategy was also co-produced with members and service users.
