The British Deaf Association (BDA) is the UK’s leading membership organisation and registered charity run by Deaf people for Deaf people.
The BDA delivers a range of services to achieve its aims of empowering Deaf people to overcome difficulties that they face on a daily basis.
The BDA also supports young Deaf people and their hearing families. Deaf Roots & Pride provides mentoring support from Deaf role models and group activities for deaf children and young people aged between 8 and 20. DRP aims to support them to see the positives in their deaf identities and to build their confidence and aspirations in negotiating key transitions and preparing for adult life.
We believe that access to Deaf role models, activities involving other deaf children and families, and providing support in British Sign Language are all crucial in empowering vulnerable deaf children.
