Every single donation makes a real difference and there are many ways to give and many areas it will reach. Here are the types of thing your money could pay for.

£5 could pay for a gift for a Deaf child at a RAD Christmas party, showing them how valued they are at a party put on just for them.

£10 could pay for one place for a Deaf child at a RAD summer activity day, allowing them to socialise with peers, gaining confidence and build friendships.

£25 could pay for one family sign session, introducing sign language to a family unit so a Deaf child can feel included and involved.

£50 could pay for an individual support session for a Deaf person with learning difficulties, giving them that little bit of extra help where they need it the most.

£100 could pay for one month’s befriending support for a Deaf older person, making sure they feel part of their community and not isolated and alone.

£250 could pay for an interpreter at a funeral for a Deaf person allowing everyone to come together to remember them in their own way.

£500 could pay for one life skills session for eight Deaf people with learning difficulties, teaching them skills such as cooking basic dishes; helping them be empowered and independent.

£750 could pay for a job skills workshop for up to 10 Deaf people, helping them overcome barriers faced when applying for work, like communicating with a prospective employer.

£1000 could pay for a full family sign programme for two families, meaning Deaf children in hearing families can start to feel more included in their family’s world.
