  • Mission statement

    BID works to support people with a wide range of impairments in the West Midlands, Durham, Kirklees, Leeds, Cumbria, Milton Keynes and Lincolnshire. It has travelled a long way from its modest beginnings in the latter part of the 19th Century, when its prime function was "to provide relief to Deaf people and attend to their spiritual needs".
    BID has developed a reputation for providing innovative, high quality services to meet the many and varied needs of people with a sensory impairment. Today BID provides Care Management, Deaf Awareness, Support & Advice, Interpreting Services, Youth Work, and Equipment Sales amongst a growing portfolio of services.
