Letter to Editor: Supporting Deaf Aware at Christmas

Charity / Sat 18th Nov 2023 at 10:56am

Dear Sir/Madam,

CHRISTMAS is a time when families and friends look forward to getting together, but for the 1 in 5 adults with hearing loss, crowded dinner tables full of people laughing and shouting over each other can be a nightmare to follow. Not to mention softly lit rooms and the blaring notes of Rocking around the Christmas tree. This is no Christmas cracker joke.

You may have family or friends that struggle with hearing loss, or perhaps you are the one who often feels left out of conversations? RNID’s Christmas Dinner Game was created to ensure that everyone at your dinner table can have fun together whilst being deaf aware, so that everybody feels included and no-one misses that joke you’ve been practising!

Visit rnid.org.uk/game and we’ll send you a game pack in the post which will include everything you need to have a festive, fun filled dinner, at the same time as learning a bit of British Sign Language (BSL) on the side!

You’ll also find tips for being Deaf Aware on our website. This Christmas let’s make sure no one is left out.

Teri Devine
Director of Inclusion and Employment at RNID
