Hello there…

Since March 2024 I am the Prospects Researcher and Grants Writer at the British Deaf Association part time until September.

I am also working as a consultant for the Greater London Authority, looking at policy recommendations to meet the needs and experiences of Deaf Migrants in London, part time until September. 

I am an Associate at University College London until December 2025.

Until December 2023 I was a Research Fellow at University College London, looking at Visual Communication and Reading Development in Deaf Children.  I have also worked on a small UCL funded project on Deaf Migrants and their needs in London. I have also worked on a small UCL funded project with Deaf LGBTQ+ people (especially Deaf Rainbow UK) on development of British Sign Language for emerging new glossary.

I was the Executive Director (maternity cover) for Deafinitely Theatre, a National Portfolio Organisation funded by Arts Council England. 

I worked on a short term contract with Consortium, looking at more than 400 LGBT+ groups’ experiences across Intersectionality/ies (Older people, Women, People with Disabilities and People of Colour).

I travelled South America for 8 months in 2018 and have written a book about this experience.

I was the Deputy Director for Children, Young People and Partnerships at the National Deaf Children’s Society (2007-2018). 

Between 2018 and 2021, I was the Chair of Deaf Rainbow UK, a charity for Deaf people who are also LGBTQ+.

I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield back in 2002, which looked at social-cognitive development.

You can find my full CV here.

You can email me on research@tyronwoolfe.co.uk for any enquiries you may have.  I do various bits of consultancy, most recently for Parapride:

‘I reached out to Tyron specifically to work on a project related to Deaf inclusion and improving the accessibility in our website. Tyron has been very professional since the start of our communications. He was prompt about explaining what he could do to contribute positively to the development of the project, and very clear when sharing ideas on how he would achieve the outcomes within our budget available. Thanks to his project management skills and valuable contacts among the Deaf community, we managed to make good progress on a project that had become difficult to manage prior to his expert guidance. We look forward to keeping in touch with Tyron for future advice. Daniele Lul, Community Engagement Director, ParaPride.”

With best wishes
