Not hearing us

This research explores the experiences of profoundly deaf prisoners in England and Wales.

It analyses provisions made available for deaf prisoners and uses interviews and case studies to investigate the manner in which provision is delivered in order to make a set of recommendations for improving the treatment of deaf people in prison.

The research was undertaken by Daniel McCulloch, the first recipient of the Howard League Bursary for the MA in Criminology at Birmingham City University.
