Charity Info

Access Bedford and the D/deaf community together can make a huge difference, find out more about our charity below.

Established in 2013 by 4 Bedford Volunteers – Suzie Sampson, Catherine Wright, Alison Cook and Emma Sparrow, Access Bedford started to bring together the D/deaf Community to socialise and work with services to be more D/deaf aware.  

In 2015 Access Bedford became a registered Charity, our aim is to work with the D/deaf and hard of hearing community to make Bedford Borough more accessible. We support the D/deaf community by holding events that get people together to discuss what is needed in Bedford. From this we talk to services and providers and look at how to improve accessibility issues so that D/deaf people can get access to the information they need.
