Our DAVE project will be taking part in a 7 a-side friendly against the Greater Manchester Police.
The DAVE (Deaf Activities Volunteering Experience) Project is aimed towards 14 to 25 year olds and has been designed to meet the needs of young deaf people who are approaching a transitional age in their lives. This project provides them with the knowledge and skills they need to function in a predominantly hearing society, raising their aspirations and expectations.
The DAVE Project assists in the growth, independence and development of its members. The success of our young people is testimony to the individual growth, confidence and self-belief/worth that has surged within them. Involvement in the Manchester Deaf Centre’s Youth Service has equipped our young deaf people with the skills they need to secure future employment, internships and volunteer roles, whilst also providing them with a weekly opportunity to engage and socialise with their deaf peers.
The money raised will go towards the youth services at the Manchester Deaf Centre.
