CyNam wants to give back to the local communities so works with a number of local charities who help improve lives through technology. CyNam provides these charities with a stage and opportunity to speak and showcase their causes and work at CyNam events.




GDA is the only charity in Gloucestershire providing practical and emotional support to deaf, hard of hearing and deafened children, young people and adults.

Deafness is one of the most misunderstood conditions in our society. Most people will assume deafness is about not being able to hear when in fact it’s about the daily battle a person faces with communication and the heart-breaking effect it can have on their physical and mental wellbeing.

GDA provides a range of services and support that aim to alleviate the loneliness and isolation people living with deafness can face, from lip-reading classes to social activities and communication support. Everything GDA does has the purpose to give deaf people confidence, to feel safe and inspired and to be part of the wider conversation.
