The third of five lottery funded heritage project themed videos, entitled ‘A Deaf perspective of heritage starts at home’. All five videos consist of edited one-to-one interviews with several Welsh Deaf people, recorded in 2021, at Deaf Hub Wales, Cardiff Deaf Centre, 163 Newport Road, Cardiff. Some interviews were held via Zoom due to the lockdown brought on through Covid-19. The names of all interviewees appear on screen as each one is interviewed. All use British Sign Language (BSL) in the interviews, and shortly will have English closed captions added.

(Note: there is an error, this video is mistakenly listed on screen as the 2nd)

The role of the Missioner, and later, the Social Worker, feature prominently in Deaf people’s lives up to the late 1970’s. Many found Deaf people employment, however, from the 1980’s onwards there was a growing acknowledgement that Deaf people had their own language and culture, and the recognition that they could be independent from paternal support, as these interview clips from the third video highlight.
