CHARITY BREAKING BARRIERS FOR DEAF VICTIMS OF ABUSE

Apr 3, 2023

Deaf Abuse Free is the charity’s newly offered project, funded by Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry

Has been created to break down the barriers faced by deaf, deafblind, and hard-of-hearing women who are victims of abuse.

The importance of having fully accessible services for hard-of-hearing victims of abuse is shown through the women they are already supporting.

One survivor helped by Deaf-initely Women is a woman who is profoundly deaf as well as having Autism and ADHD.
