A space to help raise awareness, provide a voice and share resources and knowledge to those inside and outside the hearing loss community.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unexpected and devastating effect on the deaf and hearing loss community. Face masks have made navigating the world incredible difficult as those who are deaf or have hearing loss rely on lip reading and facial expression to communicate with others.
With lockdown lifting its easy to believe this is over, but it isn’t for the hearing loss community whilst masks continue to be mandated by the government.
We all want to stay safe during Covid-19 and beyond, so let’s do that while having clarity in communication for all.
