Volunteers are crucial in supporting the local Deaf Community.
Cambridgeshire is a big rural county so volunteers help CDA to reach the most isolated deaf people.
Volunteering for CDA is a dynamic and rewarding thing to do.
Our befriending service is a great way to volunteer for us in a varied role that will see you: Accompany someone to the hospital, go shopping, fill out simple forms, provide help with letter writing, provide transport to events.
We are also training recent recipients of Cochlear Implants. Volunteers train people how to hear with their implants, either face-to-face or via iPad.
All our volunteers have a knowledge of Deaf Culture and the current issues affecting the Deaf community.
We also provide training to volunteers to improve their deaf awareness and knowledge of the culture.
If you or someone you know would like to have a befriender, please follow this link to register your interest.
We are always looking for new volunteers, so if you would like to get involved, please fill in the form and we will get back to.
