Working together to help deaf children listen and talk

Volunteering, becoming a member and helping raise funds

DELTA is, and intends to remain, a group of people who work to help deaf children make the most of the hearing world. We hope that you are finding the advice, support and encouragement provided by our sturdy band of volunteers helpful to you and your family.

Perhaps you would also like to be involved, or would like to help us secure a better future for our deaf children. As a charity, we rely on donations and fundraising efforts and, as importantly, on volunteers to provide the range of expertise to support our work with families with deaf children.

If you would like to help us, then take a look at some of the ideas we’ve suggested – and it doesn’t have to be cash! We welcome help of all kinds from donations, through to volunteers offering expertise, lending a listening ear or sharing experiences with families in similar situations.

DELTA is a national charity which supports deaf children and their families and professionals.

The London Marathon is only two months away and we're extremely lucky to have nine runners who will also be fundraising for DELTA. We're always rooting on each of the runners and for the next month, we will be sharing their stories and updates to their London Marathon Challenge. It would be great if you can donate to their epic efforts to get trained for the most well-known marathon in the world. Our first runner is Arunima Chatterjee who as a long-time runner has always wanted to run for the London Marathon. This is her story: "I can relate to DELTA really well. I suffered severe hearing loss as a kid. I was treated by a doctor but my parents had no knowledge of dealing with such a kid. I remember all this made me a very very quiet kid with no friends. Today I am a double PhD as a Marie Curie fellow 🥰. Thankfully I met teachers who never gave up on me 🙏.Very often do we ‘ignore’ our health because other things (job/housework/kids/pets/holidays/grocery etc) take priority. Nothing wrong with that but are you choosing these over your ‘health’ every time. Did you know that mental and physical health are strongly connected? It’s really easy to work on physical fitness and it automatically ensures better mental health. Let’s put in a few days focused on our health.I am running London Marathon on 2nd October 2022 with a small charity🥳🥳. In order to promote physical fitness (and in turn mental well being) and to help with my fundraiser for DELTA I have a fun challenge for all of you.1. Choose any of the following distance and commit to walk/jog/run them in 30days. 10km, 20km, 30km or 50km (or cycle 40km or 50km at one go). Mention your distance in the group for accountability. 💪2. Wear your running shoes (or take your cycle if you doing the cycling challenge) and head out for walk/jog/run (or cycle). Keep repeating 3. till selected distance is complete. 3. Please spare some change for fundraiser for DELTA-Deaf Education through Listening and Talking (DELTA is a charity run by deaf adults and supports deaf children. More often than not, such kids are ignored even before given a chance. I know I was one such kid🥹). Hearing loss should not be a limiting factor! You will receive finishers medals for this challenge!! Feel free to share your sweaty-smiley selfie😇FYI: if it is of any help I started running in 2017 from being an absolute non runner😝. My first 5km was the toughest run ever 😅You can find out more of her story and donate to her efforts in the link here: https://tcslondonmarathon.enthuse.com/pf/arunima-chatterjee-3e971 ...
