Ovingdean Hall Foundation, previously Ovingdean Hall School for Deaf Children, is a charity and  grant-maker supporting education projects for deaf children and young people in the UK.

Charities we have supported include The Elizabeth Foundation, The Ear Foundation, National Deaf Children’s Society, Panathlon and SignHealth.

We have funded new music rooms, family rooms, sensory rooms, salaries, equipment, and sports and theatre experiences for deaf children. We also fund scholarships for teachers training to be Teachers of the Deaf.
