Bromley Deaf Children's Society
Are you the parent or carer of a child who is deaf or has a hearing impairment? Do you live in or around Bromley?
About our group
Bromley Deaf Children's Society (BDCS) was formed by parents almost 10 years ago to support and inform local families with deaf and hard of hearing children.
Aims and activities
BDCS aims to provide a network of support for individual families with issues ranging from diagnosis through to educational concerns.
We provide support through:
- subsidised social activities and outings;
- a quarterly newsletter;
- our monthly Saturday club.
As a committed group of parents, carers and teachers, we try to do things in a positive, fun and lively way. Our informal meetings are attended by parents/carers, deaf adults from the community and deaf tutors and teachers from local schools.
The meetings provide a setting to get to know people in and around the area, develop friendships and express concerns and worries.
Our Saturday Club has proved to be extremely popular, providing a place for parents/carers to meet and chat in a relaxed environment while the children play. Various activities are provided for all ages. This includes a bouncy castle, children's entertainer, arts and crafts, football/snooker, face-painting and more. The club is held at Greystones Scout Hut, Pine Avenue, West Wickam from 2pm to 4:30pm.
If you're interested in attending our meetings or joining us at the Saturday club, please get in touch. Contact Debra Wakeman, 0208 249 2940, 07752 544 216, firstname.lastname@example.org
