Day events

These are aimed at deaf children aged 8 to 16 years, although some events start at age six. They provide a great opportunity to meet with other deaf children who usually live locally. The emphasis is on having fun. No previous experience of any of the activities is required as we tailor activities to suit all levels of ability. Some day events are suitable for children with additional complex disabilities.

I now feel happier about his attending other events.  He mixed really well with all the age groups.

Our Get Active Days offer a range of sports led by qualified deaf and hearing coaches. Programmes might include sports such as basketball, tag rugby, mini tennis, martial arts or archery. Where possible we link up with local clubs and coaches to provide the opportunity to get involved in these sports on a regular basis.

Football festivals

These run as part of our Deaf Friendly Football Club Project and offer a day of fun football skills, coaching and mini games – all levels of ability welcome. These are usually held at the training grounds of the football club we are working in partnership with and might even include a chance to watch a professional football match afterwards.
