JDA’s vision is of a world where there are no barriers to communication and understanding between deaf and hearing people; a world with respect, inclusion and equality.
By informing, supporting and educating, our mission is to improve access, independence, equality and inclusion for people with a hearing loss, thereby breaking down barriers between deaf and hearing people.
We aim to:
Objectives and Activities
JDA’s primary objective is to support people with all levels of hearing loss. Originally set up to support the religious, cultural, social and physical needs of deaf people of the Jewish faith, services are now broader and open to everyone.
Who we serve:
JDA is centrally located in North Finchley in the London Borough of Barnet and we serve people from Barnet, the surrounding boroughs and beyond. Our reach also extends across England and overseas.
Fees and charges
In order to ensure equality with hearing people, who have free access to mainstream information and advice, we keep our equivalent accessible services free of charge. Some income is generated from membership fees and by charging for events, outings, classes, social clubs, etc. We keep charges low as the large majority of our clients, particularly the older ones, are unemployed and on benefits.
