Meet our volunteers

Our amazing volunteers are based across the UK and come from a range of backgrounds. They help in many different ways, from supporting our family events to sharing their stories and experiences. Each volunteer plays a vital role in our work with deaf children and their families.

Read on to meet some of our volunteers, who have kindly shared their personal stories and experiences of volunteering with us.
