Do you know how good your local audiology service is?
We are calling for all children’s audiology services in England to prove their quality. They can do this by completing a government approved scheme to become 'accredited', but so far only 15% have achieved it. This means that 85% cannot guarantee that their service is good quality.
Is there a local campaign near you?
We monitor and challenge local authority cuts to deaf children's services across the UK. But, we rely on the support of our local campaigners to stop cuts in their area.
We're asking campaigners to:
- Stop the cuts to the Sensory Service in Manchester
- Help protect resource bases for deaf children in Hull
This action is for campaigners in Manchester or Hull only.
Is there an Ofsted inspection near you, right now?
Following our Inspect the Uninspected campaign, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission will be investigating special educational needs and disabilities services across the country.Tell us about an inspection in your area now
Why don't deaf families have access to free sign language courses?
We think they should, which is why if you're in Northern Ireland, we're asking you to contact the Health Minister, Simon Hamilton MLA, about Family Sign Language funding.
NDCS offers some free sign language courses but we think the funding should be permanent and sign language offered to all families with deaf children.
This action is for Northern Ireland only.
