Nottinghamshire Deaf Society (NDS) is a registered charity that works with deaf, hard of hearing and deafened people of all ages across Nottinghamshire and the East Midlands, focusing on ability rather than disability. The Society is based in a Grade II listed building on Forest Road West and celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2015.

The Hearing Deaf Voices Project is funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund. It will celebrate the history of the Deaf Community in Nottinghamshire, capturing memories, experiences, histories and heritage. This will include an exhibition in the Central Library between 1st and 29th March 2017, interviews with community members; archiving photographs, videos, documents, and items of interest. The project runs from April 2016 to March 2017.
