Deaf Ex-Mainstreamers Group Statement during the Covid-19 pandemic
We received funding from the NHS to continue to support the DEX Deaf Youth Council (DDYC) and other youth groups so they are not isolated at home and posted government and NHS information and updates on the current Coronavirus world-wide outbreak to our members.
We now have Heritage Lottery Covid 19 Funding in order to sustain DEX throughout the Coronavirus. During Tiers 2 and 3 Lockdowns we are not meeting up but will keep in touch with the DDYC members individually.
We follow government rules:
- Wash hands - keep washing hands regularly
- Cover face - wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
- Make space - stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions
This is not only for our own safety but for everyone.
The BSL welcome to the DEX website
Deaf Ex-Mainstreamers’ Group (DEXperience)
We are an entirely deaf-led organisation that exists to raise awareness of the daily struggle that deaf children have in mainstream education.
Every deaf child’s wellbeing matters to us and to you!
DEX uses the English dictionary definition of the word “deaf” to mean “wholly or partially without hearing” to apply to all children who have hearing loss.
DEXperience welcomes everybody, whatever education experience you have. We have adopted ‘DEXperience’ to show that we are inclusive of all.
We are a deaf-led organisation that was set up to support deaf people who are being educated in mainstream education, or who attended mainstream schools. Deaf people who attended Deaf schools want to support this campaign too.
