Fundraising for DEX
We receive Gift Aid which is a way for charities to increase the value of monetary gifts from UK taxpayers by claiming back the basic rate tax paid by the donor on the donation. It can increase the value of donations by a quarter at no extra cost to the donor.

Here are just some of the comments about DEX’s work, and how your donation can make a big difference to a deaf child and family:
Trainee mainstream teacher
“DEX came to give a very powerful talk to us about the effects of mainstream education on deaf children – I had no idea that it was so difficult. It has made me realise, and think about how I will make sure they are included in future.“
Deaf young person
“When I was being bullied, DEX came to my school and taught deaf and hearing children not to bully children in school. The bullies didn’t bother me after that. Also, my school had a box for children to put messages in if they were being bullied, and this was part of the policy. Thank you DEX.“
Parent of deaf child
“DEX has just supported us through a difficult appeal in order to get the school placement we wanted, and helped us to win our case! We will always appreciate DEX’s input.“
Parent of deaf child
“DEX’s service has been fantastic! For months I had been battling with the school and authorities on my own to get the correct support my child needs as a deaf child with additional needs. I really felt I had no support and was even starting to question my own convictions. As soon as i contacted DEX I had immediate intervention and promises to meet and attend meetings were never broken. I felt I had at last professional support and someone who completely understood my child’s case. The support was empowering and I know without it I would have a had more of battle in fighting for my child’s needs. A huge thank you!“
