Brent Deaf Children's Society
Are the parent or carer of a deaf child or child with a hearing loss? Do you live in the Brent area?
Brent Deaf Children's Society (BDCS) started up in 2014 and is run by parents and carers of deaf children, working together with local health and educational professionals.
All of the local groups registered to NDCS are very different. Most get together regularly and organise occasional activities for deaf children and their parents.
Aims and activities
The type of events local groups organise depends on what their members want. They usually try to organise some children’s activities like trips to the theatre, or local theme parks; Christmas and summer parties; visits to restaurants or bowling alleys for older children, or arts and crafts evenings.
Some groups also organise events for parents. These might include coffee mornings for newly diagnosed parents; nights out for mums and dads; information days on specific subjects and talks from local professionals.
Groups are run by a committee of dedicated volunteers and always welcome new families and helping hands. Contact us to find out more and how you can get involved with Brent Deaf Children's Society.
