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. 

As a social enterprise covering the areas of both Brighton and Hove City and East Sussex County, profits are reinvested to further the aims of DeafCOG and the Deaf community.

 

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.
