Imagine you are born into a family, into a world, where you cannot communicate. You cannot tell anyone your hopes and dreams or even your nightmares. No one can comfort you or tell you how things might be different.You will spend your whole life unable to make friends, go to school or earn a living.

Without sign language and an education this is what life is like for Deaf children born into hearing families in the developing world. At the core of everything we do at Deafway is the belief that every deaf child and adult, wherever they live in the world, should have access to sign language. 

We are a well established UK registered charity founded and still working in Lancashire (in the north of the England) fighting for a fairer world for Deaf children and adults. Our UK services include residential care services for Deaf people with a range of needs, sign language theatre projects and shows, Deaf heritage and cultural activities and training in British Sign Language for hearing individuals and organisations. Our overseas activities and projects currently focus on Nepal with work including Deaf schools, sign language and older Deaf persons’ projects, as well as a support for a small Deaf school in Uganda.

Our residential services is the only one of our services which receives any statutory funding, all of our other work in the UK and internationally is made possible thanks to your donations. You can choose to donate towards a specific project, to make a one-off donation, to donate monthly or even to leave us a gift in your will…there are lots of possibilities.

If you too recognise that deaf people in the UK and in the developing world do not get an equal deal in life – if you share our passion for changing this situation for the better – then please give us your support by making a donation today.
