Our past … present … and future


john_hay_1Welcome to Deaf History Scotland.

For many years there has been a British Deaf History Society, but this has not included Scotland. In April 2008, an open meeting was organised by Scottish Council on Deafness (SCoD) to discuss this very issue. Over 50 people crowded the Deaf Connections Theatre (in Glasgow) and following presentations, it was decided to establish a Scottish society, which was later named Deaf History Scotland.

This website is dedicated to providing information, resources and details of events that promote and maintain historical issues in and around deaf people in Scotland.
