What is the BDS?
Welcome to Bolton Deaf Society. We are a non-profit charity, supporting the Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in the community. Our Centre has been here on Bark Street for over 40 years. The Centre is well known within the Deaf Community as we provide social events for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing on a weekly basis. Possibly what is not very well known, is the fact that we have a chapel within our building, where signed services are held on the first Tuesday of every month. As our chapel is part of the Diocese of Manchester, we can accommodate private services such as christenings or funerals.
We have a first floor function room and staffed bar, that can accommodate up to 100 guests, which can be hired out for most occasions, also kitchen facilities are available.
Feel free to look around our site, if there are things you would like to know more about, then please contact us, we will be more than happy to help.
Bolton Deaf Society is a Hate Crime Reporting Centre, working closely with Bolton Council and the Greater Manchester Police, to reduce the amount of hate crime in our local area.
We are part of a wide network of professionals that can help with a variety of needs, so if we are unable to help here at the Centre, we can sign post you to someone that can.
