About us

In May 26th 2012, the “European Platform of Deafness, Hard of Hearing and Deafblindness” was created in Copenhagen during the General Assembly of the European Disability Forums EDF.

The Platform has been formed to enhance, strengthen and cultivate a robust and enduring collaboration between the Europaean Cochlear Implant Users (EURO-CIU), the European Deafblind Network (EDbN), the European Federation of Hard of Hearing People (EFHOH), the European Federation of Parents of Hearing Impaired Children (FEPEDA) and the European Union of the Deaf (EUD), for the express purpose of benefiting Deaf people (including sign Language users). Hard of Hearing people, deafened people, and Deafblind people and their families regardless of the language, the communication system or the assistive technologies they use (hearing aids and cochlear implants). We aim to strengthen the EU 2020 strategy and the EU Disability Strategy as regards to full and equal participation in society.
