Deaf Awareness Week 2019

There are 10 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK. That’s 1 in 6 of the population.

This week is Deaf Awareness week and the White Ink team is undergoing deaf awareness training to help promote social inclusion, the positive aspects of deafness and raise awareness of how to support deaf people in the workplace.

Eoghan Fee recently joined White Ink as Architectural Assistant. Eoghan is deaf: “Since joining White Ink two months ago the team has been a great support and fully embraced me as a team member. This week is an exciting one – it will be good opportunity for the team to understand my deafness and make them more aware of issues to be considered in the workplace.”
