A chance for deaf young people to get involved

At our Get involved and make a difference webinar, you’ll find out how you can:

  • join our events and socials
  • volunteer or get work experience
  • get involved with campaigning and activism.

Who are these live webinars for?

Deaf young people aged 13 to 25. You may already be involved, or you may want to find out how to get involved, it doesn’t matter which! Just come along, meet others like you, be inspired, and learn how you can make a difference.

Sign up for the event for your age group:

What you’ll need to take part

A computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection. We recommend using something with a bigger screen if you’ll be accessing communication support, so you can see the interpreters and captions clearly.

Once you’ve signed up, we’ll confirm your place and send you all the information you need. Only people who have registered will be able to attend.

Your camera will be turned off during the webinar. However, you’ll be able to join in through a (moderated) chat box to:

  • share your experiences
  • ask our role models questions that they’ll answer at the end
  • get support from our team.

Communication support

We’ll have spoken English, live captions and British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters at these webinars. If you have questions or would like to find out more, send us an email at [email protected].

Dealing with tiredness

View in BSL

Do you struggle with feeling tired? Do you sometimes think you feel much more tired than your hearing friends and family? You are not alone! This webinar is an opportunity for you to get some top tips to help you sleep better and deal with tiredness.

We’ve invited Nicola Carozzo, who is a qualified Paediatric Sleep Practitioner, to deliver the session and give you some practical advice.

We’ll explore why you might be experiencing tiredness or sleeplessness, and share some useful information and tips to help you overcome it. Maybe you’ve been staying up late playing online games, or you’re having a really busy period at school, college or university. Or perhaps you keep waking up in the night because you’re worried, stressed, anxious or unwell. Whatever the reason, this is the webinar for you.

We’ll have time at the end for you to ask Nicola some questions.

Who are these live webinars for?

Deaf young people aged 13 to 25. You may already be involved, or you may want to find out how to get involved, it doesn’t matter which! Just come along, meet others like you, be inspired, and learn how you can make a difference.
