About the SVRR Project
The SVRR project is funded by Trust for London.
The Trust funds a number of DDPOS to assist them to increase their capacity to deliver information, advice and advocacy to Deaf and Disabled residents. The Trust also funds IL to support these DDPOs and a broader DDPO network where appropriate, to equip them with the practical skills, training, peer support and resources they need to improve and strengthen their advice provision.
