Meeting other parents

Photo: Lots of parents find it useful to get to know other parents of deaf children

"Talking to other parents was really useful, knowing that they had gone through the same situations was encouraging, I didn't feel so out of my depth. In fact, I have made some really good friends."

Sarah, mother of Seana (7).

We believe that parents really are the experts when it comes to raising a deaf child because you’ve lived through all the highs and lows. Knowing that you’re not alone and meeting other people who have experienced the same challenges can be very empowering.

You can get know other parents of deaf children through our family events, Local Support Groups, and our Facebook page, can also be a fantastic means of support.

The most valuable things parents of deaf children have found about meeting other parents of deaf children are:

  • meeting other parents in the same situation
  • learning from each other
  • supporting each other
  • sharing experiences
  • feeling part of a community.

To find out more about the experiences of those who have attended our events read our story: Growing in confidence together.

My child has a hearing loss: Meet other mums

A Welsh support group for parents of deaf children tell us how their weekly meeting has helped their families. We can help you find or set up a support group of your own.
