Support and advice

Call us on 0808 800 8880 for advice and support for deaf children and families. We offer advice for professionals working with deaf children too.


Local groups

Local deaf children's societies are run by parents and carers of deaf children, working together with local health and education professionals. They give emotional and social support to families with deaf children, and give deaf children the chance to meet outside of school.


What's on

Our What's on section lists events, family days, signed and interpreted performances, and much more.


Strategic support

There is a team of regional directors whose main roles are to influence key decision makers in local authorities and health services to ensure education, health, social care and other public services meet the needs of deaf children.
