Wales: Ask the minister to make the right decision this summer!
The National Deaf Children's Society Cymru is concerned that vital educational support provided by health (such as Speech and Language Therapy), will be unprotected if a draft new law is not amended.
Why can't young people learn sign language at school?
British Sign Language is used by lots of deaf people in the UK but courses are hard to find and learning it can be expensive. That’s why our Young People’s Advisory Board, a group of 16 deaf young people, is asking for it to be taught in school.
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 cuts to the sensory service in Bury
- Respond to the public consultation in Cumbria
- Respond to the public consultation in Bradford
These actions are for campaigners in Bury, Cumbria and Bradford only.
