The most accepted estimate for the number of deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK is 9 million, which is 15% of the 60 million people living in the UK.
Go! Sign was set up with three main charitable aims, these are:
- To advance the gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly amongst Deaf People;
- To create a network of information to support Deaf and hearing signers;
- To promote the full participation of Deaf and hearing signers in their church life and communities.
Go! Sign was inspired with a desire to obey Jesus’ commission to make disciples of deaf and hearing signers. At the same time we seek to find ways to improve local churches for a better accessible, discipleship growth, information and resources.
