GDA is grateful to the Dept of Work and Pensions for a DPULO Facilitation Fund grant, awarded in 2013 for the charity to undertake a two-year Deaf employment project. It has enabled us to help a number of Gloucestershire Deaf job-seekers into successful employment, to support others already in employment, and to help four Deaf entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses within a GDA communications supported environment.
