DSN: Deafness Support Network is the service provider organisation for D/deaf* people in the county of Cheshire and the surrounding areas.
These services are delivered under a contract for Cheshire East, Cheshire West and Chester, and Flintshire Councils.
The local societies (Deaf Clubs) in Chester, Warrington and Vale Royal retained their independence and continue to thrive to this day, sharing premises with DSN. Each society serves a distinct local community but is strengthened by its partnership with DSN, which is able to innovate and develop, whilst acting as a guide and support for the local organisations.
* – What do they mean by D/deaf and D/deafblind?
The word Deaf (with a capital ‘D’) is used to denote individuals whose first language is British Sign Language (BSL), whilst the term D/deaf refers to everyone with a hearing loss: Deaf, deaf, deafened, hard of hearing and Deafblind.
There are many ways to get involved with Deafness Support Network, from volunteering to the DSN Lottery – you can help make a difference to this fantastic local charity. Find out more by visiting the Deafness Support Network website now.
