Sound Waves Foundation


Established in 2022 by mothers of deaf children, Sound Waves are reframing deafness as deafability rather than disability so deaf young people can flourish in life and education.

Their Actions For Captions project assists schools to leverage technological advancements like live captioning to make education more accessible, while their after-school clubs break down stigma by teaching hearing and deaf children together.

Sound Waves have schools queuing up for their services, but they lack capacity. With our funding, the founders will have double the time to propel the charity forward. This will allow them to scale their projects, grow revenue streams and build partnerships to ultimately achieve their mission of normalising and celebrating deafness in schools and society.
