Online coffee morning for parents and families of deaf children

21 July 2020 10.30-11.30am

We’re holding a free online coffee morning for parents, carers, and families of deaf children and young people. While we’re currently unable to run our face-to-face events, we’d love to give you and other families the chance to meet each other. It’s a great way to share your experiences, ask questions, and be part of a community of families of deaf children.

Join us and other parents of deaf children online for a cuppa and a chat – children are welcome too!

Whether your child has been newly diagnosed or you’ve been a member for a long time, we’d love you to join us. You’ll get to:

  • meet and chat with other parents and families of deaf children and young people
  • share your experiences, tips, and advice on how you’ve been coping with lockdown and being at home
  • find out about our other online events and services, and how we can support you during this time.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
