Empowering Deaf Society


Run by the Deaf, for the Deaf

EDS, as our core philosophy, aims to ensure that all Deaf people are recipients of equality


EDS, as our core philosophy, aims to ensure that all Deaf people are recipients of equality. We wish to ensure that Deaf people have the same equal rights, opportunities and skills as those who are hearing.


EDS provides services that are designed to meet the needs of the deaf community that reside in London.


EDS is a charity that was set up by members of the deaf community on behalf of others within the deaf community. We depend on our staff, volunteers and funding to perpetuate our goal of supporting the deaf community.

British Sign Language (BSL) is a beautiful and well-constructed language in itself

Learning any new language is most definitely a challenge for all. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or interested in developing your skills even further. Throughout the year, we offer a variety of courses ranging from BSL Level 1 all the way up to Level 6. The duration of our courses range from one day to one full academic year, depending on the course content and the qualifications desired. Our qualified and very friendly Deaf teaching staff are ready and willing to guide you on your BSL journey from the very onset.
