Cambridgeshire Deaf Association (CDA) is a Deaf-led organisation. We promote the welfare and interests of Deaf people.

We believe Deaf people should receive the same access and opportunities as hearing people. We mainly support Deaf people whose first or preferred language is British Sign Language (BSL) but also work with people with any level of deafness.

If you feel that we can be of help to you or someone you know, please contact us and we will find out information for you or, if we cannot help, we will put you in touch with someone who can.

    INFORMATION

  • Deaf Futsal in Peterborough

  • The Centre of Peterborough Futsal Centre now holds deaf futsal sessions for adults, which are proving popular. The squad trains on Wednesday evenings, 7-8pm at Stanground Academy. The session is run by qualified coaches and is open to all ability levels, whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned pro. To join up, or sponsor our squad, contact us via our contact page or via twitter (@pborocityfutsal) or Facebook. What is Futsal?
  • Access to Work

  • Access to Work are changing the way that Deaf people get support. It is now more difficult to get the support we need and it does not meet employment needs.

    Please help us challenge this - add your name to the petition now!

  • E Petition for Qualified Communication Support for Deaf People

  • David Buxton states: “We are asking everyone to sign our e-petition urging the government to require all public bodies by law to provide a deaf person with a registered communication professional should they require it. If we get 10,000 signatures, the government has to respond formally. If we get 100,000 signatures, we can get a debate in the House of Commons about this."

    Please sign the e-petition to get deaf people the decent communication support they need.

  • Deaf Church

  • See updated Deaf Church page.

  • Cambridgeshire Hearing Help (formerly CAMTAD)
  • Demonstrations of hearing help equipment: telephones, TV amplifiers, alerts and more.
