Befriending Services


CDA uses a small group of Volunteers, some Deaf and some non-deaf, to support others.

Accompanying someone to hospital, the doctors, going shopping, simple form filling, help with letter writing or transport to and from some of the deaf clubs or drop-ins are some of the tasks our befrienders do.

All volunteers have signing skills and the tasks they do are matched according to their signing ability.

All our volunteers have a knowledge of Deaf culture and the current issues affecting the Deaf community and we also provide training.

Would you like to volunteer for CDA or would you like a befriender? We’d love you to get in touch.
