Deaf Action

We currently offer two befriending services for deaf* people.

Sound Sense offers both face-to-face and distance befriending throughout Dundee to deaf people aged 16+ who are experiencing difficulties or isolation due to their deafness.

Our other befriending service is available nationwide and offers befriending through video calling.

*deaf includes all people who are either BSL users, hard of hearing, deafened or Deafblind

Information for volunteers

We actively seek volunteers who wish to gain new experience in befriending with deaf and hard of hearing people. The opportunity is there for volunteers to learn about deaf awareness, lipreading and some of British Sign Language.
