We are delighted our ‘Charity of the Month’ partnership for November is with Deaf Action, who will receive free pop-up space to raise funds and awareness, marketing support and a £250 Gift Card donation.
The deaf-led charity, which was founded in 1835 and the first formally constituted deaf organisation in the world, exists to support the diversity of deaf people, including deaf users of British Sign Language (BSL), and those who are deafened, deafblind or hard of hearing.
Their work is geared towards empowering all deaf people to achieve their potential and fully participate in society, with equality of rights, access and opportunity and reducing barriers and inequalities for deaf people.
They also provide BSL courses and deaf awareness training with the aim of raising awareness and creating more inclusive environments in the workplace and local communities.
As part of the ‘Charity of the Month’ partnership Deaf Action delivered training sessions with our team to highlight the barriers deaf people face in day-to-day life and provided insights into being more deaf aware, inclusive and accessible.
Visitors to the shopping centre can find out more about Deaf Action services, fundraising opportunities and courses, at their pop up in the mall on the weekend of the 25th and 26th November, located adjacent to the Customer Service Desk.
