The Irish Deaf Society has started an exciting project to develop a strategy for the next 3 years. What does that mean? It means we are developing a plan about what topics we will campaign for and to understand what the priorities are for Deaf people in Ireland. We need your input to tell us what are the challenges and barriers you face. What changes do you want to see? What are the biggest problems you have in your day-to-day life? We have developed this survey to help us understand your needs and opinions. The survey is in English and ISL, you can watch the ISL videos of the questions and you can answer in ISL or English, or both!

IDS is working with a company called “Mantra Strategy“ on this project. Over the next few months, we will organise meetings around the country to ask for your opinions. We need your input to make sure our strategy is led by Deaf people from all over Ireland.

Your answers to this survey are confidential. If you choose to ISL your answers the only people who will see the videos are the staff in “Mantra Strategy” and the interpreters that will help them to translate. When Mantra staff share your feedback IDS staff will not know who has given the answers so this survey is anonymous.
So please, we need your opinions, help us represent your views! There are 3 ways you can help us to achieve equality for the Deaf community:

  1. Answer this survey
  2. Attend one of the IDS meetings around the country, keep an eye on our social media for more information about this
  3. Share information about this survey with your Deaf friends and family
