Advice and Information
We provide information and support on a range of topics such as benefits, tax credits, housing or problems when buying goods and services. If you need more specialist advice or information, we also have partnerships with a range of organisations who can support you. We can also provide communication support if you need to be referred to another organisation for advice. Our contact details are here.
We have up to date information about local events and activities in and around Milton Keynes. You will find events run by local groups such as the Hard of Hearing group and MK Deaf Zone. You will also find information about accessible venues such as Bletchley Park who arrange BSL interpreters for tours. Check here for regular updates of events happening in and around Milton Keynes.
Over the last five years, we have carried out a number of projects to support Milton Keynes Deaf Community. Our two employment projects achieved an 80% success rate in enabling job seekers to find work. Overall, our projects added over £230,000 into the local economy.
Our current ‘Tech and Tea’ project helps members of the Deaf Community to avoid isolation by providing regular meetups to learn digital skills such as learning how to do video calls and how to keep safe online.
Our current project is suspended due to the Corona Virus. Updates on the project can be found here.
