Doncaster Deaf Trust Children’s Home(s) strongly believes Deaf people should have access to equipment and provisions which enable them to access a wide range of facilities and live as independently as possible.

The Home has a range of tools to help make this possible, including:

  • Flashing fire alarms in every bedroom
  • Video and DVD player with subtitle captions
  • Minicom
  • Fax machine
  • Computers with Skype facilities to keep in touch with family
  • Staff who communicate using British Sign Language
  • Trained interpreters
  • On site audiologist
  • Vibrating alarm clocks

Using these provisions, individuals are encouraged to develop their independence, while having the added security of trained staff on hand to support them.
