Welcome to Deaf-initely Women

Deaf-initely Women is a charity that is managed by deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing women. Deaf-initely Women serves all deaf and hard of hearing women in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and beyond.

We give each other emotional strength to help us to cope with our working and family lives and provide opportunities to gain confidence, knowledge and new skills. We serve all deaf women from the age of 16+ and with varying degrees of deafness and communication needs.

Stronger together!

“Thank you for arranging these wonderful events. It means I am able to feel part of a large community safely in my home!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and would love to have more opportunities to create, learn new craft skills, other subjects and advanced levels as the options for myself as a deafblind person is very far and few. Just having that chance has been great as it has made a difference to my mental health”

“It was amazing. Great for all of us to build confidence around horses, different sizes. It was emotional for me I feel I have got my life back. I enjoyed it so much that I didn`t want the day to end.”

“I am less anxious being in a group of deaf ladies discussing forums as I know I won’t be judged....people think because I have speech I can’t be severely/ profoundly deaf!.... and can follow the conversation captions and sign language is available. I am therefore more receptive to the information being given.”
