Are you deaf, or do you have hearing loss? Then we want you to tell us what it’s like living in the UK today.  

This is the biggest survey we’ve ever run to understand public attitudes towards deaf people and people with hearing loss. We’ve asked the general public what they think about deafness and hearing loss and now – most importantly – we want to find out from our own communities about your real-life experiences.

Your opinion matters. It helps to educate, change people’s minds, and influence their behaviour. Share your experiences and help make a more inclusive society for all.

As a thank you for taking part, you can enter a prize draw to win a £100 voucher.

What is The Big RNID Survey? 

The Big RNID Survey is the biggest survey we’ve ever run to understand public attitudes towards deaf people and people with hearing loss.

In this survey we’ll ask about your life experiences as a deaf person or a person with hearing loss.

We want to learn what assumptions, challenges and misconceptions you might face on a day-to-day basis, to help us understand what changes we need to see and make in the world.

How long is the survey?

The survey is multiple choice and should take around 15 minutes.

Why are you doing this?

We need to fully understand the experiences and challenges that people who are deaf or have hearing loss face in the UK today. The results of these surveys will shape the work we do here at RNID for years to come.  

Who should answer the survey?

We want to hear from all deaf people and people with hearing loss, including deaf BSL users. 

There is also a chance to win one of five £100 shopping vouchers (Terms and Conditions are below).

Is the survey translated into British Sign Language?

Yes, every question is translated into British Sign Language. 

I have a question, who should I contact? 

Please get in touch with Contact RNID to get in touch.
