About Empowering Deaf Society
EDS: Run by the Deaf, for the Deaf.
EDS, as our core philosophy, aims to ensure that all Deaf people are recipients of equality. We wish to ensure that Deaf people have the same equal rights, opportunities and skills as those who are hearing.
EDS provides services that are designed to meet the needs of the deaf community that reside in London.
EDS is a charity that was set up by members of the deaf community on behalf of others within the deaf community. We depend on our staff, volunteers and funding to perpetuate our goal of supporting the deaf community.
Equipped with the right funding and support, EDS is going from strength to strength. We are working on encouraging inclusion, education and raising awareness in society.
Since being set up in 2009, we have delivered many successful projects in London for both the hearing and deaf community.
These projects have successfully encouraged people to work together increasingly and facilitate understanding of each other in a better manner, in areas including education, health and welfare.
