Action Deafness, a leading Deaf-led charity in the UK is delighted to announce the appointment of Rinkoo Barpaga as a new Deaf Patron.

Rinkoo is a talented Deaf Stand Up Comedian and a Multidisciplinary Artist. Rinkoo grew up in the Midlands where Action Deafness has its Headquarters.

He says:
“It is a great honour for me to become a Patron of an organisation with an excellent ‘Deaf-led’ ethos. It is important to me that organisations embrace diversity and equality as they provide services to benefit Deaf people. It is a great privilege to work with Action Deafness who strive to make a difference to all of the Deaf community, particularly those who are marginalised.”

Craig Crowley Chief Executive of Action Deafness commented on the appointment:
“Following Sophie Stone’s recent appointment as our Patron, we are delighted to have another Deaf Patron in Rinkoo Barpaga. His support is essential in helping us highlight the importance of diversity through our work with vulnerable Deaf people. I have no doubt Rinkoo and our other great Patrons will support Action Deafness to achieve positive change within our communities across the UK.”
