Campaigning for change

The NDCS Young People's Advisory Board has been going seven years, they exist to directly shape and guide the services we deliver. It offers an exciting opportunity for young people to meet other deaf young people, learn new skills and make a difference. Each Board picks a campaign. Here is some information on them.

Make change happen

Young Campaigners Network

We’ve set up a Young Campaigners Network for young people aged 16 and over across the UK and we want you to join!

By signing up you’ll become an official National Deaf Children's Society Young Campaigner and be able to get involved in our campaigns activities. We’ll ask you to do loads of different things to spread our message far and wide. You might be asked to write to your local MP or sign a petition or maybe even come to one of our events.

In exchange you’ll receive the Campaigns Bitesize newsletter which will keep you up to date on all our campaigning work and what you can do to get involved.

Watch this video blog by former Young People’s Advisory Board (YAB) member Liam, to find out what campaigning means to him, why he thinks it’s important to share your views with politicians and how you can contact your own MP.

Watch this film to find out what some of our former YAB members think the UK Government should change for deaf young people.

If you’d like to get involved, please get in touch with us at [email protected].

Have something to tell us?

If you have something on your mind, join us on our Got Something To Say page. You might want to share a brilliant idea you’ve had, or to tell us your story, or an opinion you’ve got about something that’s happening.

You can also ask our Buzz team anything – big or small – and to get advice and information to help you.
