The Deaf Achieve Project is a milestone in the history of RAD. The project was supported by funding from Big Lottery for 3 years with around 230 people from London and Essex having befitted from this project. The project has allowed RAD to set up informative workshops within a variety of areas, such as: Driving Theory, First Aid, Employability Skills and even Confidence Building exercises. These community groups have been supported by volunteers in each field.
