Have Your Say online workshops

An opportunity for deaf young people to shape the future of our events

Would your child like to meet other deaf young people at a fun session where they can share their views?

The Have Your Say Workshop puts young people in the driving seat, giving them a chance to tell us what matters to them. This will help shape our future events and activities, making sure they’re right for your child.

We’ll play games to get everyone warmed up, then discuss topics that matter to the group and answer some interesting questions. Afterwards, we’ll share how we plan to make the group’s ideas a reality.

Who these workshops are for

These workshops are recommended for deaf young people aged 8 to 11 and 12 to 14 years old.

There are two Zoom workshops on Saturday 17 July.

Ages 8 to 11: from 10.30am to 11.45am.

Apply now

As a parent or carer, you must apply for a place on your child’s behalf.

More information – what your child will need to take part
