Scoping study on service use by the Cambridgeshire D/deaf communities

This study aimed to begin to explore the use of different services in Cambridgeshire by people who are D/deaf. The research identified several gaps in knowledge about particular groups within the D/deaf community and also identified gaps in services in Cambridgeshire .

The gaps were:

  1. Rural isolation amongst people with hearing loss
  2. Older people with hearing loss in care homes
  3. Advocacy services for deaf people


The second phase of the research will therefore concentrate on these three issues.
