DSFF’s core purpose and focus is to support D/deaf sports players, coaches and managers to fulfil their potential in their chosen sport and meet their sporting goals.
We are looking to assist any D/deaf person in the United Kingdom whether in education, in or seeking work with the necessary support to maximise their sporting potential. That support can come in various forms, such as communication, logistics, sport training, fitness training, sports & science technology, grants, dieticians etc or collectively within a package of support systems. To provide required support we will invest in trainers, coaches, sport scientists and training centres who will adapt to provide the maximum benefit from their services for D/deaf sports people/coaches and managers. They will also be able to apply for grants to support their National/International competitions.
This support will be financed from funds raised by DSFF. Funding will be raised through a variety of methods from appeals, direct marketing to philanthropic donors and generous benefactors either as individuals or corporate organisations and businesses. Fund-raising will be one of the core processes of DSFF to ensure sufficient funds can be shared by as many D/deaf sports players as possible. Support will be available to teams and non-team sports players pursuing their chosen sporting aspiration.
