Supporting the Deaflympics

As Deaf Aspirations is committed to helping deaf and hard of hearing people not only in the UK but Internationally, we want to support the Deaflympics and encourage children & young people to take up the challenge of competing at their chosen sporting activities. We also advocate that the Deaflympics should become more “inclusive” and work more closely with the Paralympics & Olympics so that they are treated equally in regards to funding allocations and prestige. A step forward into the 21st Century would be to have deaf people and hearing eligible to serve on the ICSD board and executive bodies instead of only just deaf people.
