Deaf Cultural Outreach Group

Description

DeafCOG, Deaf Cultural Outreach Group, is an umbrella organisation that hosts activities and projects that are of value to the deaf community. The aim is

  • to promote the deaf identity positively; 
  • to create opportunities; 
  • to strengthen the community; 
  • and to provide community-led services in British Sign Language (BSL) and deaf culture. 

DeafCOG is a Disabled People's User-Led Organisation (DPULO) and has a core belief that ‘deaf people can’ provide services and lead projects themselves, as well as in partnership with other organisations and social enterprises. 

DeafCOG onlines forums are the place to join in and have a conversation about anything that interests you.

PA Community Service - Caring the Deaf Way

DeafCOG and Action Deafness work jointly, to provide one-to-one support to deaf, deafened, hard of hearing and deaf-blind people. 

​As we are both deaf-led organisations with experience and expertise in both deafness and community care, we are able to provide a holistic and tailored deaf specific service to people living in Brighton & Hove City and East Sussex. 

PAs will normally be proficient in BSL, with an in-depth understanding of issues relating to deaf people and their culture. 

Our PA Community service will promote and encourage independent, healthy living; cultivate strong community links to ensure natural support networks are used well; inspire the sharing of information in a language that is accessible and culturally appropriate. We will support carers and families of our service users to actively engage in the positive work we do for the benefit of the individual. 

​Service users can apply for referrals directly. Family or friends, members of the NHS Services, Social Services or anyone else connected to the service users, who has their permission to act on their behalf can also apply.
