RAD has been committed to working with Deaf people of all ages helping create a better future since 1841. 175 years on, and we are still making headlines. People from across the Deaf community contact us every day about everything from Children, Youth & Families, to Employment, Advocacy and Interpreting and much more.

Every single donation makes a real difference and there are many ways to give and many areas it will reach; your donation can help a Deaf child or adult fulfil their potential through providing communication support, emotional support, helping them find employment, providing vital life skills training and work-shops, taking part in children’s holidays and activities.. Your generosity can help change the course of a Deaf persons life.

“You’re a star for what you have done for Kirsty*. She is a different person now because of you. I cannot find the right words to say thank you.”

Quote from Kirsty’s father *names have been changed.

Whatever your donation, we value your support immeasurably and ask you to stay in touch, visit our website and events to witness first-hand the vital work your generosity enables us to do within the Deaf community across the country.
