De-Charles is the only partner in the uk to the Teachers' ICT Competences project.

We hope to collaborate with institutions like the Royal National Institute for the deaf and the British Association of Teacher of the Death and indeed the Local Council of Croydon.

Some facts and figures

  • There are an estimated 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK. This is rising as the number of people over 60 increases.
  • In the UK, there are about 20,000 children aged 0 - 15 years who are moderately to profoundly deaf. Many more have temporary hearing problems in early childhood.
  • There are an estimated 123,000 deafened people in the UK aged 16 and over.
  • Most of the 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK have developed a hearing loss as they grew older. Only about 2% of young adults are deaf or hard of hearing. Around the age of 50 the proportion of deaf people begins to increase sharply and 55% of people over 60 are deaf or hard of hearing.
