Supporting deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, deaf-disabled and Culturally Deaf people

Vision

 

deaf awareness: NE’s (daNE)strategic objective is to communicate with and educate the general public in ways that will dramatically raise their deaf awareness so that deaf awareness becomes an inherent, natural, instinctive condition of everyday life which dramatically raises the quality of life for a significant section of the population.

Welcome!

Mission Statement

 

daNE's mission is to dramatically raise deaf awareness amongst the general public and communities by bringing together deaf and hearing people in social, working and learning environments. We will also create and deliver learning programmes, provide research and create opportunities which will facilitate good communications and interactions between hearing and deaf people. Using all forms of media, we will create a positive image of the contribution that deaf people make to the wellbeing and prosperity of their local and wider communities and how hearing people can improve the quality of life of deaf people.
