Back in 2017, we received funding for an eighteen-month project from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project, ‘The Deaf Detectives’ explored the history of RAD and its local Deaf communities from 1841 to the present day. Thanks to the participation of Deaf Clubs, schools and local groups; we were able to research Deaf history, with people becoming Deaf Detectives themselves. The collation of this research resulted in a play, an educational resource and finally a book.
The Deaf Detectives covers the history of RAD, local Deaf clubs and centres we have worked with, why the charity was set up and how the organisation has evolved to how we know it today.
We are only printing a limited run of 150 books so be quick and get your order in ASAP if you would like one!
