The Employment Service

Centre for Deaf are working alongside Gloucestershire Deaf Association to support Deaf and Hard of Hearing people who are having difficulties working or have been furloughed. The focus of this project is on creating peer support for Deaf and Hard of Hearing participants creating solutions to the barriers they face in returning to work or continuing to work from home. The evaluation will therefore focus on the group dynamics and on the perception of the value of the group activities by the participants.

We are aiming to identify employment issues for Deaf and Hard of Hearing people and their employers, the solutions that have emerged from the group sessions and the scope for a future project. To get involved, please email if you are based in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Swindon or Wiltshire. If you are based in Bristol, please email:

…I was very satisfied with the service. The two staff were professional and easy to communicate with. They were able to explain everything clearly and quickly gave me the replacement equipment.
