Who we help Doncaster Deaf Trust owns and manages a nursery (0-5 years), a school (5-16 years) A college (16-25 years) and an employment unit that assists adults (18-64). The Trust also owns and manages a care home for school-aged children. Our facilities are dedicated to assisting people who have a broad range of disabilities, including; Deafness and Hearing Impairments, Asperger's Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Conditions, Downs Syndrome, Ataxia, Fragile X Syndrome, Cohen Syndrome, Coffin Lowry Syndrome, Duane Syndrome, Gushers Syndrome and other conditions where the primary disability is a reduced ability to communicate effectively with the rest of the world. However, we do much more than educate and support the children and young people who come to us. As a part of the Doncaster Community, many of our facilities are opened up for use by local charitable and community groups. Mencap and Autism Plus, for example, use our sporting facilities; the guides and scouts do the same and during the summer recess, Doncaster Community Foundation uses our facilities and our accommodation for over 200 16 & 17 year olds who take part in the National Citizenship Youth Programme. We hold lots of events here for many different groups and organisations too; The Gurkha community have used our restaurant facilities many times for their annual celebration events as have Doncaster Lions and the Rotary Club. The Caravan Club bring their members here to use our large field areas twice each year and football teams playing in the regional Hallamshire Leagues use our playing fields and sports facilities for their training sessions. And, because we're involved in five different European projects, we often play host to large numbers of our European friends from 15 different countries, all of whom work within organisations like ours, helping their own deaf disabled students in their own countries. If you would like to come and see, personally, or professionally, please do. We're always delighted to be able to show guests around and whether your reason is simply curiosity, or whether you want to see if you could use any of our many facilities for your group, it doesn't matter. We're proud of what we do and what we achieve so the more people who know about us - the better! Call Andy Ellis on 01302-386720 and he will arrange a tour for you.
