Recently there have been rumours over a change of leadership at the British Deaf Association (BDA). They have now released a statement, reprinted below in full:

"The Board of Trustees announces the resignation of the Chief Executive Simon Wilkinson-Blake as from 1st October. Simon will leave the BDA on 31st December 2009 to take on new challenges and pursue new horizons.

The Board of Trustees would like to express their appreciation for the diligence and commitment that Simon has shown over the past 18 months. He has actively supported the Board in its direction to become once again the voice of the Deaf Community.

The Board of Trustees, Senior Management Team and Chief Executive are still deliberating to ensure a smooth transition and all future plans. The Board will announce more information in November after their next board of trustees meeting."

Terry Riley

Chair, British Deaf Association
