The Deaf Caravan and Camping Club (DCCC) was founded in 1974 by a small group of Deaf people since then the member has be increasing year by year. The DCCC organised monthly rally around the UK from March till October.
During the AGM in 1998, due to the increase number of members and long distance of travelling, a matter was brought up to set up regional areas to organised rallies in the Northern, Midlands and Southern area, it was agreed to set up a sub-committee chair by the belated Mr A. Monk to discussed setting up new structures of the DCCC, at the AGM in 2000 the members vote unanimously for the new structures to start from 2001 which became Deaf Caravanning and Camping Club uk. (DCCCuk.)
Another club called Welcome Deaf Camper (WDC) founded in 1986 which organised rallies for members around the London and some part of southern area decided to affiliate with the DCCCuk in 2003 and their logo still remain WDC.
During our 30 years celebration anniversary rally at Devon, the officers of the DCCCuk decided to award Mr William & Joan Rowley as our Honourable Life Presidents of the DCCCuk, they have be a member and officer role of the DCCC/DCCCuk since the DCCC was founded in 1974, the longest serving member and can anyone beat that!!!
The objectives of the DCCCuk, now running over 45 years, are to oversee the regional areas that organised rallies and social events for the benefit of Deaf, Hearing Impaired and Hearing people. To promote and support of the regional area i.e. DCCC north, CDC and WDC. The regional areas set up their own officers and committee and the DCCCuk shall observe and provide facilities for the regional areas. The DCCCuk also co-operate with other organisation with the same interests as the club.
The members should be received a DCCCuk rally booklet with the choices of rally programme events, the annual membership is from January to December and the AGM held in the autumn.
