Events for parents, carers and families
Get support from our friendly experts and meet other parents of deaf children
We have a range of events and courses to support parents, carers and families of deaf children. Run by our experts, they cover a variety of topics and issues from finding out your child is deaf or has a hearing loss to supporting them as they become a young adult.
Our events and courses are also a great way to meet other parents and families in a similar position, to share experiences, and be part of a community.
All of our events and courses are suitable for families of children and young people with all levels of deafness. Many of our events and courses are free unless stated otherwise.
