Annual meetings and networking

Would you like to attend one of our annual meetings for local deaf children's societies? We hold four events across the UK where members can meet, access training and share experiences of running a local deaf children's society. 

Annual meetings

A chance to share and celebrate with other groups 

We offer local deaf children’s societies the opportunity to get together and meet other groups from across the regions, to celebrate successes and share challenges, by hosting a series of annual meetings – generally around Autumn time.

The Local Groups team provide updates on activity across the organisation, advice and training to help you maximise your group's potential and continue your great work in the community.

Many groups leave feeling motivated and inspired with fresh ideas and new tricks up their sleeves!

"An excellent day, we really enjoyed the active and interactive sessions, very valuable, thank you!" Annual meeting, 2016

"I have learnt so much about the work that the National Deaf Children's Society does and I feel privileged to be a part of it" Annual meeting, 2017

We encourage as many of your members to attend as possible. We cover the cost of travel to and from the event for one representative from each local group.

For those who live over 90 minutes travel time from the venue, we will be happy to cover the cost of accommodation on the evening prior to the event.

We also provide a free lunch for all those attending and communication support if needed. Where possible we will arrange childcare provision, but this is not always feasible.
