Calling all deaf people aged 18 - 28 in Scotland!

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh are doing a survey to find out about young deaf people's lives. If you are deaf or partially deaf, aged 18 - 28 and you went to school in Scotland, they are asking you to fill in an online questionnaire.

The questionnaire is in English and in British Sign Language. Your name will be entered into a £100 prize draw if you complete the survey. The questionnaire is online at www.deafachieve.org.uk
