Deaf Action

Chair and Board Members X2

Location: Edinburgh


Deaf Action is a deaf-led charity providing services across Scotland and South England. We exist to support the diversity of deaf people, including deaf users of British Sign Language (BSL), and those who are deafened, deafblind and hard of hearing. Our work is geared towards empowering all deaf people to achieve their potential and fully participate in society, with equality of rights, access and opportunity.

We provide a range of services and projects aimed at reducing inequalities and removing barriers for deaf people. From dealing with isolation with our befriending and social clubs, to practical support such as specialist equipment and interpreting, our services are designed to make life easier and more fulfilling for deaf and hard of hearing people. Deaf Action is looking for new Board members who can help make Scotland and South England a better place for people living with hearing loss.

We are seeking dynamic individuals to join the Board as Trustees. We are interested in speaking to individuals from a range of backgrounds including, but not limited to:

  • Legal/Regulatory/Finance
  • Health & Social Care
  • Arts & Culture
  • Digital

We are also looking to speak to experienced Chairs who may be interested in taking up the Chair role.

We value people who have lived experience or a connection to deafness, however this is not essential to be considered for the role, as long as potential candidates have a strong connection to our values. For more information, please contact Debbie Shields at Aspen People on 0141 212 7555 or
