Join us at our Family Events for information, activities and fun

Our free, online Family Events will cover a range of different topics and activities. Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions and make sure that everyone has a good time. You’ll meet other families and have a chance to chat too.

Who these events are for

These events are for deaf children aged 16 and under and their families. Each event lists the age of children it is best suited to.

By family we mean one or more parents, carers, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins...the list goes on! 

Please note that our events are open to National Deaf Children’s Society members only. If you're not a member yet, you can sign up for free online.
