The British Deaf Association (BDA) is a Deaf-led organisation focusing on Deaf people who use British Sign Language (BSL) or Irish Sign Language (ISL) as their first or preferred language. The BDA is the leading Deaf organisation in the UK run by Deaf people; united by shared experiences, history, and, most importantly, by BSL and ISL. Since 1890, the BDA’s long standing commitment has been to ensure that the language, culture, community, diversity and heritage of Deaf people should be effectively protected by valuing the rights of Deaf people - with all their diverse experiences and abilities - and the usage of BSL and ISL.
The British Dyslexia Association is the voice for the 10% of the population that experience dyslexia. We aim to influence government and other institutions to promote a dyslexia friendly society, that enables dyslexic people of all ages to reach their full potential. We campaign to encourage schools to work towards becoming dyslexia-friendly; to reduce the number of dyslexic young people in the criminal justice system; and to enable dyslexic people to achieve their potential in the workplace. The British Dyslexia Association provides the only national helpline supporting tens of thousands of people each year. Working alongside our network of Local Dyslexia Associations, we support people of all ages from across the country.
