Deafblind people who want to work should be supported to fulfil their potential through employment

Deafblind people can work, however many will need specialist support to enable them to do so.  We campaign to ensure those deafblind people who want to work get the support they need to gain employment and those deafblind people who work are supported to do their job well and can progress in their career.

What we are doing

We listen to deafblind people and seek to influence government officials, MPs and professional bodies to ensure deafblind people benefit from the government’s commitment to halve disability employment gap.
