Ovingdean Hall Foundation, previously Ovingdean Hall School for Deaf Children, is a small national charity and grantmaker supporting education projects for deaf children and deaf young people. We mark our tenth anniversary in 2022.
Over the past decade, we have worked with many charities including the National Deaf Children’s Society, Doncaster Deaf Trust, Music and The Deaf, Mousetrap Theatre Projects, Panathlon and SignHealth. With the help of our supporters, we have funded new music and sensory rooms, specialist equipment, and sports and theatre experiences for deaf children and young people. Learn more about our projects. We also fund scholarships for teachers training to become Teachers of the Deaf. Find out more.
