Hull and East Yorkshire Centre for the Deaf
The Charity was established more than 100 years ago by a group of deaf people who met regularly under a street light in Hull. They met to talk and communicate in their own language, in a society that pretty much ostracised them for being different.
They rented their first base at 179 High Street in 1853 and from there the charity grew in size. They purchased a plot of land and in 1926 the newly built Hull & East Yorkshire Institute for the Deaf and Dumb (as it was then called) was opened.
Although its name has changed, we have continued to remain in this beautiful building as it suits our needs perfectly. The building cost a whopping £14,000 to build, which back in 1920's Hull was a tidy sum.
