About SDCA

Sandwell Deaf Community Association (SDCA) is an organisation that is lead by deaf people. SDCA works in partnership with Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) as a specialist service provider delivering services to deaf people on behalf of SMBC. SDCA emerged in 2003, following the initiative of a group of deaf people who approached the council about improving services for deaf people living in Sandwell.

SDCA has continued to grow and develop from small beginnings and we aim to actively encourage, empower and enrich the lives of deaf and hard of hearing people.
