BDA
British Deaf Association

About Us

Since the BDA was founded in 1890, its primary purpose has been the status and recognition of the Deaf Community and British Sign Language (BSL) in the United Kingdom. 

 

The cornerstones of the BDA are:

  • Language
  • Community
  • Identity
  • Heritage of Deaf people
  • Representation of Deaf peoples needs, aspirations, rights and responsibilities

 

As a member-led organisation, our work is focused on achieving equality for Deaf people through community empowerment, membership and campaigning. Working with local Deaf and BSL Communities is crucial to the success of BDA campaigns and creates opportunities for Deaf people to develop, participate and contribute in wider society.

 

The BDA is a high profile national "Deaf People's Organisation" with a strong presence throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We operate in a fast-paced, politicised environment, dealing with complex and often controversial social issues and with multiple stakeholders.
