Options for National Council
Scottish Council on Deafness is 90 years old. Our goal is equality, access and citizenship for all deaf people in Scotland.
SCoD like many other deaf and third sector organisations faces difficult times ahead. Grant income is severely reduced. Enterprising services are being developed but we are not working in a market with a level playing field. Our costs, to be inclusive, are significantly higher than mainstream activity. It makes us quite uncompetitive and reduces any profitability to almost zero.
Staying the same is not an option. The will of the membership is critical to the future.
Following a strategic planning day on 31st May 2017 the Board has developed a position and drafted a plan for the next three years.
