We can give you up to £500 to help with your project!

How do I apply?

• Think of a project that could bring your idea to life.
• Make a team of friends, your youth group or school friends.
• You must have at least two people (but the more the merrier) working on the project.
• You must have at least one deaf person on your team.
• You can have hearing as well as deaf people in your team.
• You must have a youth worker or organisation (like your school, youth group or brownies) to help you with your project.

Don’t worry though if you don’t have anyone to support you, just let us know and we can help!

Some of the fantastic projects we’ve funded so far:

• Setting up a sign language club at school to help deaf and hearing classmates communicate with each other.
• Sharing deaf awareness tips with bus drivers.
• Improving deaf awareness at local leisure centres – you can see more about a project that has already happened.
