National Deaf Children’s Society Strategy 2017 – 2022

We are developing our Strategy for 2017 – 2022.

How you helped to shape the Strategy

Thanks for the time you’ve taken to share your views and experiences with us. You may have completed last year’s survey, taken part in a focus group, completed the Member Survey in March 2016 or taken part in the Autumn focus groups. Your feedback  will continue to inform our trustees’ decisions on our new strategy, which will set long-term goals to guide our work.


Thank you for your help.

Our Focus

Taking into account your feedback, and what we know from our research, over the next five years we believe we’ll make the most impact by focusing on:

  • Improving the availability, design and quality of national and local service.
  • Developing deaf children and young people’s language and communication skills
  • Supporting the growth of deaf children’s independence and improving transitions into adulthood

Next steps

You will see this focus emerging in our new and established support services, and in our information, influencing and campaigning activities.

Our new strategy will begin in April 2017.
