Introduction

Since our formation in 1980 Bromley Chain have been committed to supporting deaf and hard of hearing in the Borough of Bromley.

LINKING deaf and hard of hearing people of all ages with their hearing peers 
LINKING with relevant services and organisations to gather and share information 
FUNDING and supporting projects (individuals or groups) which meet our criteria 
VOICING the needs of our members in the London Borough of Bromley

Current Campaigns

We are pleased that Bromley is keeping the Sensory Support Service as a whole but re 'Market Testing' it's still 'watch this space' as the Council is preparing to outsource the Service as part of the Education Package. We want to see the same Service at the same standard with no dilution or fragmentation of the Service.

Social Services in Bromley for Deaf Adults and Children: We think there should be a specialist Social Worker for Deaf people. Bromley has not had a Specialist Social worker for the Deaf for 4 years. Let us know your experiences!

Bromley Sparks disability hate crime survey

An opportunity to share your personal experiences and viewpoints by completing an online survey set up by Bromley Sparks, an organisation run by and for people with a learning difficulty or disability.

They are working on a new booklet about disability hate crime for people in Bromley. The aim of the booklet is to raise awareness of hate crime and the harm it causes. It will also help people with disabilities know what to do if they are the victim of hate crime.

If you would like more information about the project please contact Rebecca at Bromley Sparks on 020 8315 2508.

The survey closes on 30 September 2014.
