Development Director, The Deaf Academy
Steve Morton is Development Director at the Deaf Academy, responsible for fundraising, marketing and project managing the new Academy. He has had a twenty three year career working for charities including the NSPCC and CRUK and he and his team have raised £3 million in order to fill the funding gap of this ground-breaking project. Ensuring that the new Academy meets the needs of vulnerable deaf young people with additional disabilities, and a specialist staff team, has been critical, whilst managing this within a charity’s inevitably tight budget. He has learnt enough about creative value engineering to last a lifetime.
