SignHealth is a UK registered charity, established in 1986, dedicated to providing and improving healthcare services for people who are culturally Deaf (people who are profoundly Deaf and who use sign language to communicate).
SignHealth’s vision is a world where there are no barriers to good health and well-being for Deaf people and our projects and services have been designed to transform the lives of those who are facing significant life challenges, in order to prevent the high rate of mental and physical health issues experienced.
We campaign for equal rights/opportunities for Deaf people; provide supported housing; provide specialist services (psychological therapy and advocacy) in British Sign Language, provide support and coping strategies to survivors of domestic abuse; ensure better access to mainstream health services; develop innovative communication solutions and undertake research into Deaf Health.
