Here at the Deaf Academy, we are unique in being the only specialist deaf provider in the country that has provision for students aged 19-25 years old.

We are proud of this and we want to do everything we can to give our older students the best experience to prepare them for independence, adulthood and work. Our vision is to create a new Adult Residential and Learning Centre, which will be a separate space for our young adults. It will be a place they can call their own, where they can live with both the support and, equally, the independence they need.

We have found a lovely property that perfectly meets our needs, only a short walk from our main campus. The property, in Long Causeway in Exmouth, was purpose-built as a convent in the early 1990s. Our aim is to refurbish and renovate it internally to become a ten-bed residential facility for our older students. By doing so we will be able to enhance our curriculum offer and provide a more adult-centric learning and living space, where our students can thrive and flourish.

We are aiming to raise £10,000 through JustGiving towards our fundraising target and we are grateful for every contribution which will help us support our young adult students in the next phase of their journey with the Deaf Academy.
