Lewisham 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 the Lewisham area?

About our group

Lewisham DCS was formed by parents to support families in the Lewisham area. We are a new group and welcome new members.

Felicia Samuel: I am a hearing parent and have a two year old deaf son. I remember when I was on maternity leave and looking for baby groups for my son I was astonished to find that there were hardly any groups for deaf/hard of hearing children.

There is not enough out there for deaf children and I knew I had to do something to change this.I have recently set up a group within the Lewisham borough for deaf children from the ages of 0-5.

The group provides a place for parents, carers and family members to meet and chat in a relaxed environment whilst the children learn and have fun.

Aims and activities

The sessions currently consist of sing and sign, arts and crafts, free play with toys and paints. As well as fun things for the children to do we also provide information about all aspects of hearing impairment for parents and where possible offer a member from the NDCS to give advice and support for families regarding issues around deafness.

We currently run a monthly Saturday drop in that runs from 2-4pm. We have arts and crafts, sing and sign, storytelling (BSL and spoken English)
