Deaf Sports Plus

Our deaf coaching programme has transformed the lives of hundreds of deaf children and adults. The project encourages children and adults to get involved with sport and tackle the existing obstacles they face playing sport. This project includes football and multi-sports sessions throughout the year and free holiday courses.

Brentford FC Community Sports Trust remains the only Sports Trust in the country to employ a full-time, deaf football coach. Born profoundly deaf, Ben Lampert has revolutionised the way the Trust delivers deaf coaching. When he joined the Trust only three or four deaf children were involved in the Trust’s projects. Now, the Trust engages with more than 150 deaf children each year.
