Welcome to the British Deaf Association.
Our aim is to achieve Equal Rights for Deaf People.
Our main areas of work cover Empowerment and Campaigns.
Empowerment is about supporting Deaf people towards full rights and full access and our campaigns focus on lobbying Government, Councils and Health Care providers.
There are three main goals within our campaigns:
1 Legal status for British Sign Language
2 Ensuring that Deaf children have bilingual and bi-cultural education
3 The BSL Charter.
