Thu 18 May 2017, 18:30 – 22:00 BST

About Deaf Awareness Week
There are about 9 million of people in the UK who are deaf. This can vary from a partial to a full loss of hearing. Some people can lip read, others rely on subtitles. Most Deaf people who use sign language use British Sign Language, or BSL. It’s a rich combination of hand gestures, facial expressions and body language. In fact, BSL isn’t simply English with hand signs, it is a different language with its own grammar and sentence construction.
As an organisation, JCI Cambridge prides itself on providing opportunities for growth for its members, whilst at the same time, making a positive impact within the community. The purpose of the Deaf Awareness Week is to:
- Raise awareness within the community
- Raise funds to be able to support our ambitious project of becoming more accessible
- Raise money for local charities such as Cambridgeshire Deaf Association
- Empower and challenge our members through exciting and ambitious projects. It is only through experience and getting out of your comfort zone that true growth and progress can be achieved.
