Doncaster Deaf Trust is situated on the edge of Doncaster, a large market town, approximately 18 miles north east of Sheffield. 

The Trust is within walking distance of Doncaster town centre which has a large shopping centre, swimming pool, sports centre, cinema/theatre and railway station and retail and food shops.

There are also local youth clubs, dance classes, football teams and drama groups.

Dickson House and the North Flat are a short walk from one of the largest leisure complexes in the country, Doncaster Dome.

Dickson House and the North Flat are located in the grounds of Doncaster Deaf Trust where children have access to a range of facilities set in six acres of playing fields. 

Doncaster School for the Deaf provides specialist education for the children accommodated within the Home who have hearing impairments and/or additional special needs.  For children who require support after the age of 16 and who are involved in further education, there are opportunities within the Home to support the development of practical life skills.

Visitors are welcome at reasonable times during the day and evening, but preferably not when children should be at school, or after the Home has settled in the evening (usually 9pm). All visitors must sign in using the Visitors’ Book and will be appropriately chaperoned.
