Events for parents, carers and families

The Family Programme is here to bring families together and provide you with information and support in your child’s early years and beyond, and when your child is first identified as being deaf or having a hearing loss.

Despite the restrictions and uncertainty we are all facing, we are still able to support you and your child with online events, information sessions and sign language courses.

We have a range of information days which will help give you the knowledge and guidance that you may need to help support your child, as well as giving you an opportunity to meet other families in a similar position. This may be around the time your child is identified as deaf, or in preparation for starting school. There’s also an opportunity to learn about your child’s rights, which will be a help throughout their childhood.
