Welcome

Who we are

Deaf Enterprises is Ireland’s only dedicated employer of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. Founded in 1987 by Fr. Bill Clarke, our charity (CH. 8730) was set up to tackle the high rates of unemployment among Cork’s D/deaf community but has subsequently grown throughout its history to provide training and placement opportunities. We have been a proud part of Cork’s D/deaf community for over 30 years.

We launched our workshop in 1988 providing re-upholstery, sewing, French Polishing and furniture manufacturing and restoration. We now provide placement opportunities for D/deaf and differently-abled people in addition to our original offerings. Of our 26 staff, 4 have disabilities and 20 are D/deaf.
