Clapham Deaf Club exists to promote the BSL language within the local community of South London, and beyond. Our aim for this club is to ease access of communication and information for our deaf members and broaden deaf culture awareness amongst our hearing BSL user members.
We all work together to achieve these goals by:
Trying to reduce isolation of deaf people by socialising and working with other organisations.
Offering BSL workshops to the hearing community, encouraging interest, communication and awareness of the culture and language of the deaf
All members (deaf and hearing) supporting each other in this endeavour, irrelevant of their level of social or signing skills
Offering a variety of competition for all age ranges including; dominoes, darts, table tennis, pool and much more...

The club provides a weekly social setting for those in the deaf community giving the opportunity to communicate openly. CDC runs competitions from sports to dominos plus much more...
