We are here to offer support to D/deaf, Deafblind, Hard-of-Hearing and Deafened people and their families across the North East. We provide some services and can signpost you to others.
This is our homepage with the latest news, a diary of events. If you have any comments contact us.

Deaflink is a team of both Deaf and Hearing staff, Board of Trustees and a Community Action Group who are made up of D/deaf, deafblind and Hard-of-Hearing service users and hearing professionals.
Through this website we will provide information about Deaflink and the services we offer but we also want to provide up to date information about what is happening in the region and how to access various important services.
If you have an event you would like added then please contact us by clicking on the link at the top.
