JDA is dedicated to supporting everyone who is deaf or hard of hearing - people of all faiths and none, at all stages of life.

We are an independent, national charity offering professional support services, information and a range of social, cultural and educational programmes to the Deaf community, people with all levels of hearing loss, people experiencing Tinnitus, their friends, families and those caring for them.
