HEART is working with the award winning Deaf Education Advocacy Fellowship (DEAF) to take HEART partners out to the Deaf Community.
Through a series of road shows throughout West Yorkshire D/deaf students will be given the opportunity to find out about higher education in the region and the support available to D/deaf students.
The road shows will culminate in a campus event hosted by University of Leeds in November this year. Eight HEART partners will be contributing to the campaign aimed at reversing the decline, 35.5% drop since 2009, in applications from the D/deaf community.
D/deaf students and graduates will also give presentations about their experience of higher education. For more information about this project contact Nicola Akers.
