UK Deaf & HoH are not being supported.

South Welsh BSL support.

The tail of the official support tape in the UK appears to show huge disparity and inequality of support to the deaf and the hard of hearing, with the latter area being ignored in support terms. If you lip-read or want text support FORGET IT, it doesn't exist.  The welsh get just 3 supporters for their 300,000 plus with hearing loss but less than 2000 with deafness issues are served by 48+ interpreters.  Why is there NO official agency or area in the UK to suggest HoH, the non-signing areas, or the deafened get any support of note?  Or, identify where it is?
