Family Sign Language and Raising a Deaf Child courses

This week we are launching our commissioned offer for our Family Sign Language and Raising a Deaf Child courses. This means that we can now offer these bespoke courses to more families in your local area via Zoom.


Our webpage lists more information which you can share with your CHSWG members and other relevant colleagues and we hope you will be interested in running these courses in your local area in the future.

National Deaf Childrens Society Youth Activity Autumn Programme and other matters

Hello, we hope you are well!


Following the success of our Summer digital programme, and with COVID still hanging around, we have planned a full and fun packed autumn online programme for deaf children & young people aged 8-18 years!


These sessions will enable deaf children & young people to meet and engage with deaf peers and become more independent and confident by learning and achieving a new skill – all from home, via Zoom!  All they need is access to a laptop / tablet to log onto Zoom to join the fun.  Applications are NOW OPEN!


To help promote the events, and to ensure we reach as many deaf children & young people as possible, we would be very grateful if you could please share the information with your contacts, so they can check out what’s coming up this October – including half terms in Scotland, England and Wales!
