The Deaf Studies Trust was set up in 1984 to develop projects in the area of deaf studies. Its main principles are: communication and understanding - the attempt to enhance and improve the quality of deaf people's lives and their contribution to society.

The Trust views research and teaching as major priorities. Research plays a vital role in discovering deaf people's needs and finding solutions to their problems, whilst teaching is essential to make these findings available; the combination of these activities ensures that the investigative work of the Deaf Studies Trust is constantly nourished by contact with deaf people and those who work most closely with them.
