What does your organisation do?
We bring together families living with deafness through organised children's activities, a youth club and family sessions. We encourage all the family to become involved in our activities and we welcome deaf parents and their children, hearing parents, their deaf child and hearing siblings, grandparents, relatives, carers, children's and family friends. We provide a range of fun activities and learning opportunities for the children. Our sessions are designed to include and engage all the children attending whatever their level of hearing and whether they use hearing aids, have cochlear implants or sign. British Sign Language (BSL) communication is always available from staff, volunteers and/or interpreters. As well as our activities we provide a range of family friendly BSL courses and workshops and can deliver deaf awareness sessions to local schools, employers and organisations. There is also a resource library. All our trustees are living with deafness, making us a user led organisation in touch with the needs of our family members.
