Wiltshire and Dorset Deaf Association provides a much loved and valued service for the d/Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing community locally.
We need your help to raise £5,000 to help fund our work supporting the development of a small team of Deaf and hearing BSL users to enable them to deliver Deaf Awareness & Communication training to local Nursery and Primary Schools in Dorset.
Our ‘Sign for Change’ campaign will provide 3 BSL users the opportunity to embark on a career path as a BSL Tutor and enable us to introduce 600 children and young people in Dorset to British Sign Language each year.
Our ‘Sign for Change’ campaign will have a hugely positive impact on the local community as our deaf awareness training helps to break down the barriers to communication faced by pupils who are deaf or have a hearing loss and create a more inclusive environment within our schools. Equipping children and young people with the knowledge and skills to be able to communicate with deaf friends also increases self esteem, provides a foundation for developing sign language skills in the future as they start to think about further education and career paths and, most importantly, helps to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
