The Clare Foundation Charity Hub in Saunderton, Bucks, has a new addition to its growing list of charity tenants.


Deafax - http://www.deafax.org/ - is a charity which pioneers the innovative use of educational, research and training projects involving technology for deaf people.


Its the latest charity to move its operation to the Clare Foundation complex, as Chief Executive Helen Lansdown explains: The Clare Foundation is a bespoke facility which offers great advantages to charities, with opportunities to attend training programmes and work with business mentors, which will help us be more effective in our work. One of the other elements that really appealed to us was the chance to work with and learn from other charities at the Hub, which will benefit all of us. The beautiful surroundings are also an advantage!


Founded in 1985 Deafax is a charitable company which uses technological innovations and advances to generate simple, practical solutions which bridge the gap for both deaf and hearing people, helping them to communicate better. The charity also promotes positive communication between deaf and hearing people by providing bespoke deaf awareness training and advice on accessibility.


David Lawrance, Head of Development for The Clare Foundation, comments:


We are delighted that Deafax has chosen to join our Hub. We first opened discussions in 2010, so it is particularly pleasing to now have Helen and her team based here. We are firmly committed to helping charities become more effective and efficient whether through use of our training, mentoring services or professional facilities, so I very much hope Deafax enjoy being part of the collaborative community here.
