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.

Learn about some of our volunteers

In these videos, you'll get to meet some of our Family Member and Deaf Presenter volunteers and learn more about how they support our face-to-face events.

While our face-to-face events have been on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions, many of our amazing volunteers have continued to support our online events.

Marnie, Parent Presenter

'I think my favourite thing about volunteering is experiencing the feeling in the room when parents start to feel comfortable to start talking to each other.' - Marnie, Parent Presenter

Kim, Munya, Juliet, and Brian, Deaf Presenters

'It's a good opportunity to meet other people from around the country, like other deaf people that I wouldn't have met otherwise. And to feel like you're impacting on another deaf child's life in a nice positive way.' - Kim, Deaf Presenter

'I decided to volunteer with the National Deaf Children's Society because I share their value, which is that deaf children with the right support can achieve as much as other children.' - Munya, Deaf Presenter

'I chose to volunteer with the National Deaf Children's Society to be able to give something back and be able to share my experiences of growing up as a deaf child.' - Juliet, Deaf Presenter

'I enjoy volunteering because it helps families of deaf children learn positive experiences of being deaf. And secondly, volunteering it gives me experience of how to do presentations.' - Brian, Deaf Presenter
