The Royal Association for Deaf people (RAD), is a charitable organisation that provides services to people who are profoundly Deaf and use sign language, or other visual forms of communication.

All RAD’s frontline team members are either Deaf themselves or fluent in sign language. They understand Deaf culture, barriers and often have lived experience and an innate ability to adjust their signing to meet the wide and varied communication needs of Deaf people.RAD recognises the importance of education and provides a variety of services to support children and young people to sustain education and to go on to live fulfilling lives.

The innovative Integr8 (Intergrate) programme is tailored to meet the individual needs of each deaf child/young person; specifically focussing on those who are at risk of becoming NEET or those who require additional support in order to effectively engage at school/college and achieve their full potential. This support provides a safe and confidential outlet which over time can encourage safe expression and achieve real outcomes.

RAD also offers befriending support on a one-to-one basis, in school and in the community to achieve specific, pre-agreed outcomes such as improved confidence, reduced isolation and/or improved independence/life skills.

All support is tailored to an individual’s needs – with associated support packages carefully designed and outcomes agreed. If you are interested in learning more about these or other RAD services please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Currently RAD are offering this programme in London, East Anglia and the South East/South West of England.
