As a charity, we rely mainly on funding from national and regional awards bodies to provide our services but we always welcome additional donations from individuals and companies.
We are especially grateful to Awards for All, with funding from the National Lottery, for awards granted to us in 2004 and 2006, and to Community First, for funding from Solve – The Local Solutions Fund in 2004.
We also wish to thank JPMorgan Community Fund for the provision of a laptop in 2010 for teaching and training purposes.
We were delighted to have been awarded £1,000 by the Lloyds Bank Community Fund which enabled us to go ‘on the road’ to present WW1 Commemorative events to deaf and hard of hearing people in the area in 2014.
Thank you to the South West Foundation who have recently awarded us a fantastic £1,000 and to AFCB Cherries Community Fund who have also awarded us a whopping £1,000 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.
Thank you to The National Lottery Community Fund, Dorset Community Foundation and Tesco Bags of Help for supporting our ‘Make It Clear!’ Campaign to help prevent further barriers to communication for our local d/Deaf and HoH community through the promotion of clear panel face masks and provision of deaf awareness training during the Covid-19 crisis.
Thank you to BCP Council for the award of a Discretionary Business Grant to help mitigate our significant loss of income caused by the pandemic.
If you are a taxpayer, you can ‘gift aid’ your donation. For every £10 you give, we can reclaim £2.50 tax relief from the Government.
