Dr Peter Simcock is Senior Lecturer in Social Work at Birmingham City University, and a Deafblind UK Ambassador! Our ambassadors are all passionate about helping people with sight and hearing loss and share our belief that more people need to know about this condition.

In addition to teaching on BSc and MSc Social Work courses, Peter is also the Course Lead for the Certificate and Diploma in Professional Studies (Deafblind Studies).  Prior to working in social work education, he was a specialist social worker with d/Deaf and deafblind people and has a long-standing practice and research interest in deafblindness. He is particularly interested acquired deafblindness, and the experiences of those ageing into or with deafblindness.

Peter is the current Chair of the Deafblind International Acquired Deafblindness Network (ADBN).  He is delighted to be an Ambassador for Deafblind UK, especially as his interest in the field began when working as a volunteer communicator-guide for the charity in the late 1990s.
