'Sign for Change' c

We are looking to raise £5,000 to help fund our work supporting the development of a small team of Deaf and hearing BSL users to enable them to deliver Deaf Awareness & Communication training to local Nursery and Primary Schools in Dorset. “The sessions are amazing. I like learning how to sign to my friends.” – Year 3 Pupil. “I find the Sign Language lessons very fun and it means I can talk to someone who is deaf. Something I didn’t know how to do before” – Year 4 Pupil. If you would like to make a donation, or to find out more about our ‘Sign for Change’ campaign, please email us at donations@wdda.co.uk
