Fundraising for deaf children and babies needn’t involve great effort or lots of organisation. These ideas can be completed from the comfort of the couch and will still give more deaf children the opportunity of an equal start at school.

Set up a regular donation

The most effective way to donate to AVUK is through a regular monthly donation. Monthly donations enable us to plan ahead and ensure funds are available when they are needed the most.

At AVUK we believe that volunteers are crucial members of the team. If you are thinking about volunteering your time and expertise we would love to hear from you. As we are a small charity your time could be instrumental to support our fundraising team, adding to our administrative capacity, or contributing a specialised skill-set, like graphic design or photography. So much of what we do, and what we’ve achieved, is down to the collaboration with volunteers in our team as we raise expectations of what deaf children can achieve. 

We are currently looking for volunteer receptionists at both our centres - click here to find out more. 

If you would like to find out what particular volunteer opportunities are available, please get in touch by emailing [email protected]

Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through GiveacarGiveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. Scrap donations raise about £35 for the charity (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more. They provide a nationwide FREE service which:

  • Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home for FREE; and
  • Recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction (depending on its age and condition).

To arrange the donation of a car, visit or call 020 7736 4242, quoting Auditory Verbal UK as your preferred charity.
