Reach Deaf Development Services

Reach Deaf Development Services focuses on service delivery to young adults.

We are committed to supporting the future development and education of Deaf/ HoH students through a programme of partnership with DCU and in accommodation services.

Currently we are working with DCU by funding the bursary support for the B.Ed. ISL pilot programme with an aim to continue supporting this into a second intake of students in 2023.

We also offer quality, affordable third level student accommodation within the campus at Cabra for Deaf/ HoH students and/or students studying in the wider area of studies associated with the Deaf/ HoH e.g. students at the Centre for Deaf Studies (Trinity).

In addition, Reach Deaf Development Services is currently in the latter stages of developing a model for independent living in the final year of school for boarding pupils, giving them an appropriate level of autonomy and independence in preparation for life outside of Holy Family School and Reach Deaf Services.
