Our Main Message

Communic8te Bury, formally known as Bury Society For Deaf And Hearing Impaired, Bury Metro Deaf Society and Bury Deaf And Dumb Society. Started from humble beginnings in 1932 when a group of individuals and £100 started a small organisation to serve the needs of the deaf in Bury. In the early days of the organisation the Rev. F . Robinson worked energetically to grow the organisation.

However, the society owes its presence and success to its first Treasurer Mrs. Ada Wallwork. During the war, the organisation lost the room it operated out of to the Army who needed the space. However, with peace, the organisation relocated and took up residence at its current location on Tenterden Street in 1948. Since that date, the Bury Society for Deaf & Hearing Impaired People have been providing services and activities to both benefit and enhance the lives of its members.

Today our members enjoy a variety of social, educational and life skills training services at our club. It is our sincere wish that the services we provide our members will not only enrich their lives but allow greater integration between the deaf and hearing impaired communities and the community at large.

On May 21st 2014 Bury society for Deaf & Hearing Impaired People and Bury Deaf Children's Society became COMMUNIC8TE BURY. A single charity.
