Press release

As Chair of the British Deaf Association (BDA), I would like to inform you that David Buxton has requested to leave the BDA in Mid-March 2017. This is so that he can pursue his life-long ambitions in mainstream politics.

Everyone in the BDA, and especially myself, would like to wish him the best of luck in pursuing his new career.

The BDA Board of Trustees recognises David’s valued input in the campaigning and empowerment of the Deaf Community here in the UK, and the deaf community are the better for it.


With regards,

Dr Terry Riley OBE
