Morning Coffees and Evening Cuppas

Online meetups for the parents and carers of 8 to 14-year-olds

We are excited to introduce our new, online meetups for the parents and carers of deaf children aged 8 to 14.

Join us on Zoom for a 'morning coffee' or an 'evening cuppa' to:

  • get to know parents and carers with a child of the same age
  • share experiences of having a deaf child
  • hear from a different expert every session.

Upcoming sessions

We are running both morning and evening sessions. You are welcome to join us for as many as you like.

Morning Coffee

Dates coming soon.

Evening Cuppa
