Hands That Talk featured in Lloyds Banking Group Video

One of our large grant holders, Hands that Talk were recently featured in a short film produced by our sole funder, Lloyds Banking Group.

It's fantastic to be able to showcase the work of one of our funded organisations through a professionally produced film.

Hands that Talk were established in 2000 to address a significant gap in service provision for Deaf and hard of hearing people living throughout the North-West of NI. They aim to improve the quality of life for Deaf people and furthermore to promote active participation.

They adopt a holistic approach to tackle problems such as marginalisation, poor self-esteem and social exclusion and we deliver a comprehensive programme of courses, training and social activities.

They were awarded a large grant in 2021 which provided £50,000 over 3 years. This grant enabled the organisation to pay the salary for the Finance and Interpreting Manager over a 3 year period.
