What is DEX?

Mission Statement: DEX’s vision is to be the deaf-led organisation that:

  • Promotes and encourages the experience and education of deaf children in order to thrive
  • Protects sign language and the deaf community.

Our History

DEX was co-founded in January 1994 as a charity of volunteers. Since then we have been involved in many different campaigns as well as having carried out our own expert research. We have grown considerably in size and now have a team of paid staff as well as having a very active board.

For Young People

DEX supports deaf young people to socialise with each other and to share their deaf experiences. We have two groups, the DDYH for 11-17 year olds and the DDYC for 17-30 year olds

For Professionals

DEX offers a variety of services for professionals who work with deaf people. We can arrange to deliver a free outreach session at your place of work. We also offer deaf awareness training for people who may come across deaf people in their day to day roles. Our consultancy service is perfect for people who are want to improve their organisation’s access for deaf people.
