Welcome to North Wales Deaf Association

North Wales Deaf Association is the regional organisation that supports all Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing and Deafblind people across North Wales as well as their family, friends, carers, colleagues and the services and organisations that support them.

We do this both by providing a variety of services ourselves and working with other organisations to promote, develop and enhance the provision of appropriate accessible services and resources available to people with a hearing loss.

  • WALES DEAF SPORTS

    Wales  Deaf Sports is working to develop greater opportunities for deaf people to play, coach, volunteer and succeed in sport across Wales. We want to  explore ways in which Wales Deaf Sports and partner organisations can  encourage people with any degree of hearing loss to participate and  progress through sport and physical activity. 

    We are undertaking research with the deaf and hard of hearing to identify people's needs and barriers to sport participation. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. Your response will remain completely confidential, and results will be viewed only in aggregate. We value and appreciate your input.

    Please note that this survey is open to people aged 16 and over.
