Welcome to Dottie's Deaf Cafe..

Dottie's Cafe in East Brighton Park is the city's first sign language venue of its kind for deaf people.

Customers are able to purchase food and drink using British Sign Language, and menu's also include descriptions in braille.  Ruthanne Garrett is behind the non-for profit idea and spoke to Juice about how it came about. 

The project needs the public's help with organisers hoping to raise £20,000 with plans to make the cafe into a community hub.  Lessons in Driving Theory, English and Computing Skills will be also offered.
