Events for parents, carers and families

Get support from our friendly experts and meet other parents and families 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. Many are free unless stated otherwise. 

Our events and courses are also a great way to meet other parents and families in a similar position, share experiences, and be part of a community.
