Founded in 1841, Royal Association for Deaf people (RAD) is the oldest organisation for Deaf people in England. In 2016, RAD celebrates its 175th Anniversary! To celebrate the momentous milestone each month through 2016 RAD will be holding a fundraising event and we’re looking for people to join us!!
One thing is for certain, the year will start with a bang with the ‘RAD 175th Birthday Honours Awards Dinner at the Millennium Hotel, London and close on a high with a service of Thanksgiving, to be held at St Pauls Cathedral

Dr Jan Sheldon, CEO Royal Association for Deaf people said –
“Our 175th birthday is an excellent opportunity to celebrate all that is great in Deaf history, language and culture. We know there is some fantastic work taking place and some amazing individuals – let’s find out more and celebrate them. We are so proud to be 175 years old; we see this as a real achievement for our charity.”
