ABOUT US

For our director this is personal...

Deaf people and Deaf issues has almost been a lifelong involvement for me as founder of  Deaf Umbrella. My mother lost her hearing overnight due to a medical blunder, my family struggled to know what to do; jobs were lost, emotional reactions encountered and communication methods needed to be addressed. This is how I became involved in the Deaf community aged 13.

Deaf Umbrella came from a good idea during a career break in 1999; why the name? Well, the internet was raining information down on us at this time, information we had never had so readily available to us before. The umbrella symbol was an opportunity for deaf people to shelter with us whilst they decided what advice was helpful to them!

 

Deaf Umbrella empower deaf people by supporting their communication and promoting their opportunities for education and employment. We support people working with deaf people through high quality training and professional development.  We have worked hard to be consistently recognised by our local business community and the London Business Awards for Training & Development, the Community Interest Company and as an Entrepreneur.  I have a passion for my job; I know it is infectious!
