We are all about supporting health and wellbeing, having an active body and a healthy mind. It’s now more than ever that we are encouraging you to stay active! It may be a walk, a run, or even a skip or a jump. We would love you to share what you are doing with us and help us motivate our followers! Send us your photos, videos or email/message us telling us what you have been up to.
To help with this we have a timetable of deaf friendly activities online, available HERE. Why not try something new and let us know how you get on.

“Definitely feeling more fit and healthy and enjoy it being Deaf-friendly. Nice sense of community and friendship in this group.”
Not Deaf? That's ok! It doesn't matter if you are Deaf or not; we need enthusiastic volunteers like you to help to get more Deaf people into sports and activities.
Our Deaf Engagement Worker Mark Cunliffe is also on hand to take your enquires. Mark is (fluent in) BSL user (maybe reword?). You can either contact him on our Tuesday and Thursday chats on Facebook from 11am – 1pm or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are an organisation or sports provider that would like to get involved with the project, or if you are a hearing (non-Deaf) volunteer and would like to know more opportunities available then please contact Lorraine Harris - email@example.com.

Living Options Devon and Active Devon have been awarded funding from Sport England to set up the Deaf Get Active & Volunteer project.hare your activities using #DeafGetActive - we love to see our community doing great stuff.
Living Options Devon is a well respected user-led organisation which works to ensure that people with disabilities and Deaf people can live the life they choose. Set up in 1990 LOD is a registered charity (Charity N0. 1102489) and a company limited by guarantee (No. 4925281). Based in Exeter and Barnstaple, our charitable aims mean we we can offer services across the South West and share good practice throughout the UK. Being led and run by people with disabilities and Deaf people ensures LOD has first hand knowledge and understanding of the issues facing service users and so is very well placed to increase the influence and voice of Deaf and disabled people. We do this by providing education, training and services which enable people to live the lives they choose.
