East Lancashire Deaf Society

What is it?

East Lancashire Deaf Society is a non-profit charity, based in Blackburn, which provides support to different deaf groups across Lancashire. They understand the diverse range of communication needs of deaf British Sign Language BSL users, deafblind people, hard of hearing people and those who have lost their hearing later in life.  Their main concern is for the deaf person and their family. They strive for their right to full participation, and the same opportunities in education, employment, access and involvement as anyone else in the community. They achieve this through three main routes:

  • Advocacy
  • Information
  • Services

Who is it for?

East Lancashire Deaf Society believe that with their services and support they can provide deaf and hard of hearing people in Lancashire with the same opportunities in access to work, social activities and education as their hearing peers.
