Deaf Direct is your local, deaf-led charity supporting deaf and hard of hearing children and adults in Oxfordshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. We help over 6,000 people each year through our Communication, Community Support, Equipment, Information and Advice, Training (Deaf Awareness and British Sign Language courses) and Youth and Family Services. Our Youth services help to build confidence and independence amongst young deaf and hard of hearing people.

Our aim is to ensure that we have a society in which deaf and hard of hearing people enjoy equal participation and access without barriers or prejudice.

Hearing loss is invisible - we make sure the person isn't.
