Deaf Achieve

DescriptionDeaf Achieve is a lottery-funded project from the charity RAD that provides free:

- job clubs
- workshops
- health groups
- travel groups
- and one to one support for Deaf people.

RAD is the Royal Association for Deaf people. Deaf Achieve is a three year project that aims to improve health, independence and help develop skills for people in the Deaf community aged 18-65 who live in London, Essex and Suffolk. It offers different opportunities, from maths workshops to confidence building, to social activities including picnics and museum trips. The project is guided by steering groups and client feedback.

The job clubs meet every month and you can just drop in. Currently, the nearest one to Wandsworth is in Croydon. Places at workshops, health groups and other opportunities can be booked by email or SMS text message. Contact Deaf Achieve for more details about your nearest job club and for information about workshops in London.

The service will also provide any individual support needed to help Deaf people exercise their rights and choices, access services and learning or work opportunities – supporting them to increase their self-belief and the possibilities of what they can achieve.
