Our charity is the UK’s oldest specialist Deaf education provider. Today we operate a school, college and residential care for young people aged 4-24 from throughout the country based in Exeter, Devon. However, we are not funded in the same way as state schools and therefore rely on fundraising support and volunteers to help us change the lives of Deaf young people.
We recently announced our exciting plans to build a new world class Deaf Academy on the former Rolle College campus in Exmouth. The seven acre site, formerly owned by the University of Plymouth, will provide distinct identities for our school and college, ground level accessibility for students with physical disabilities and an opportunity to build enough residential accommodation to keep pace with a growing student population with increasingly complex needs. To do this, we need to raise £250,000.
Many thanks for your support from all our students and staff.
