Service use by Cambridgeshire deaf communities

This scoping study was undertaken as a tool for the D/deaf partnership to better understand its constituency, with a particular view to making an input into the revised Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.

The key research aims are to:

  1. Understand current user experience of existing services.
  2. Explore perceptions of what further services would be useful or could be accessed to support different parts of the D/deaf community and to understand barriers to access.

 It would also be important to demonstrate the differences between the four main groups or types of deaf people and the barriers they face that exclude them from services, both mainstream such as health and social services, and specialist services for deafness. Gaining a preliminary understanding of exclusion and inequalities would help with future fundraising.
