Sport England is investing over £360,000 in UK Deaf sport between 2017 and 2020 - this is to help them work with sport and physical activity organisations to increase awareness of deaf people’s needs, share good practice, conduct research and develop the workforce.

UK Deaf Sport are also working closely with deaf people to inspire them to take part in sport and activity, as well as training a number to be qualified sports leaders to their peers and non-deaf people.
