New Support Service Launched


CDA are pleased to announce the launch of a new support service for deaf people.

Called the Open Support Service, CDA will open its doors every fortnight for deaf people to drop in and see a specialist support worker who can support with everyday problems with correspondence, bills or family finances.

The Open Support Service compliments CDA’s successful network of drop-in centres around Cambridgeshire and Peterborough where deaf people can access support as well as meet other deaf people and socialise.

Both CDA’s Advocate and Caseworker will be on hand and both are fluent sign language users and experts in communication with deaf people.

CDA’s Mamaging Director Andy Palmer said:

“It’s great to be able to offer this service to the local deaf community. We know how vital our service is and the new Open Support Service is another good way of being accessible to the local deaf community which compliments our vibrant drop-in network and the extensive work we do though visiting deaf people in their own homes.”

“The work we do is in demand and the range of topics we can support with is very diverse. I’m hopeful that the Open Support Service will prove popular and provide deaf people with the right support at a convenient time and place.”
