The Ellis Centre in Stoke-on-Trent is the focus for both the administration of the charity and all the social activities.

We offer a wide range of activities and services, including information, training on various subjects, special groups for everyone, membership packages, volunteer visiting service and a communication support service to name but a few!!!

We are committed to actively supporting the equal opportunities of all deaf people in employment, training, services, information and education. Our project work creates opportunities for volunteers, Deaf and hard of hearing people. This might be of particular interest to those who are unemployed wishing to develop their skills, as many training programmes are available.

All our projects aim to include people with a hearing loss and the charity actively seeks your views and opinions when developing new projects.
