Our Hall is Finished!

We are proud to announce that the work to replace the Hall floor has finally been completed and we look forward to welcoming back our existing user groups and any new groups who would like to use the hall. The project was funded by Biffa Award, a multi million pound fund that helps to build communities and transform lives through awarding grants to communities and environmental projects across the UK. Without their support we would not have been able to use the hall as it was becoming unsafe due to the uneven floor, leaving our deaf support groups and local community groups without a place to meet. Due to the pandemic we had to close the centre but we are working hard to create a safe environment to enable us to reopen again in the coming weeks.  Hopefully we will be able to welcome everyone to a celebration event later in the year. In the meantime I would like to send a massive THANK YOU to Biffa Award for supporting the work we do at the Deafness Resource Centre.


Covid-19 support

The DRC like many other charities, face major financial challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to impose restrictions on the use of our centre and the services we provide. We rely on income generation to fund our core services and that has been reduced significantly during the lockdown.

We are grateful for the support given by Steve Morgan Foundation and Liverpool City Region Emergency Fund who have made grants to help us to continue to deliver essential services and to help sustain the charity through this challenging time.

Thank you
