Barbara signing out – Friends Deaf Club

How did you start off?

  • I am inspired by deaf people and how they overcome their daily barriers so I learnt BSL. Within Newham there were no facilities to do volunteer work with Deaf people.

Friends find a home

  • I knew I had space at St Marks where we could run a deaf club so I spoke with another BSL student name Angie and asked her if she would like to help me start our own deaf club, so we set up Friends club in partnership with London Deaf Information Service (LDIS), in Beckton, because I had the space in our community centre and there were no other deaf clubs in the area.
