Welcome to the YDA website!

Welcome to our website and thanks for spending time to find out more about us.

Young Deaf Activities, YDA, is focused on young people of all ages who are deaf or hard of hearing and live or enjoy activities in the South Bucks area.

Our main aim is to bring young deaf and hard of hearing together to have fun by Saturday meetings, holiday events, parent support groups and other activities. We also provide help to families with home based sign language lessons. You’ll be able to see more on this elsewhere in the web-site. The key theme running through all that we do is to have fun!!

Our organisers, staff and volunteers are either deaf themselves or have considerable experience with the deaf community.

YDA is a registered charity and has been established for over 20 years, founded in 1994. We have been running for over 25 years. 

We hope that this website helps you to understand how we can help you or how you can help but if you want to make direct contact with us you’ll find plenty of links throughout this site.
