When do we meet?

Deaf-initely Women meet at least four times a year where we have the opportunity to chat and take up activities chosen by deaf women themselves.

Where do we meet?

We meet all over Derbyshire. If you have difficulty meeting up, for example, due to lack of transport - tell us! A problem shared could be a problem solved.

Activities & Events

What kind of activities does Deaf-initely Women do?

Deaf women share their aspirations with each other. Using this information we aim to make it possible for them to take up the activities they have always wanted to do.

All activities are designed to nourish and improve their health and well-being as well as their confidence and assertiveness to deal with challenges that come up in their daily lives as working and family women.
