It's Deaf Awareness Week 7-13 May
It's Deaf Awareness Week and you can get involved by spreading the word about our 7 simple steps to changing the world.
There's a new step for every day of the week and they all aim to raise awareness of the issues that affect deaf and hard of hearing people and people with tinnitus.
The steps can help people to learn how to communicate better, how to fingerspell and how to protect their hearing – each step can make a real difference.
