The number of Deaf charities active in Scotland today - While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. However to find the information on Charities with deafness within charitable purposes this can be found on the Office of the Charity Regulator (OSCR) website at www.oscr.org.uk/ by using “deaf” as a search term. It should be noted that some of these are small charitable trusts. Further charities who focus on deafblindness can be found by using “deafblind” as a search term.
Funding available for deaf charities from both ScotGov and North Lanarkshire Council - Small grants are available annually through the Section 10 Grant Fund administered by the Support for Sensory Loss and AAC Team, Scottish Government. Deaf charities are currently funded through the following SG schemes, some of which may now be closed to new applicants:
- Self-Management Fund
