JDA has a reputation for excellence - we go above and beyond. We can provide this outstanding service because of the dedication of each and every member of our professional team.
Allow us to introduce our staff and services to you:
If you have a hearing loss, our aim is to enable your home, work and social life to be as independent and fulfilled as possible.
Under the brand Hearing Connect, our highly qualified staff offer a range of services to enable you to become more informed, more socially active, more confident and thereby more connected to those around you.
Highly trained and experienced, Jody is beside parents every step of the way, supporting them emotionally and practically with issues that arise for their children through nursery, school and university life.
Fluent in sign language, JDA’s highly skilled support team provide compassionate care and practical help to individuals, ensuring they receive the information, services and support they need to cope with the challenges of everyday life.
JDA's unique programme of activities and outings for older, Deaf and Deafblind BSL users every Wednesday takes a lot of planning and organisation! Our experienced and friendly staff make sure that everyone's needs are met and that Day Centre is stimulating and fun experience for all.
Our Deaf Community Officer organises an exciting programme of activities and events for the entire Deaf community and a separate programme for independent, active Deaf people over 50.
Our community centre is busy five days a week and our community centre staff create a warm, welcoming environment for all, ensuring that each individual's specific needs are met.
JDA receives no statutory funding and we rely entirely on voluntary donations - making the role of our Fundraising Officer integral to JDA.
Freelance professional interpreters, lip-speakers, “hands on” communicator/guides and personal carers are employed as and when required to ensure equal access for all.
The staff team is complemented by approximately 50 volunteers whose contribution is integral to the work of the charity.
