Deaf Youth Club
Sessions are open to deaf children and young people aged 11-19 (24 with learning difficulties) - some sessions each term are also open to 8-10 year olds.
We run one Friday evening and one Saturday afternoon session each month, plus extra sessions during the school holidays. young people must register for the youth club before attending. At the beginning of each term we publicise our youth club programmes - take a look at our website page for more information.
Kids club is open to deaf children aged 6-10. It's a great opportunity for children to socialise and make friends while parents have a little break. We only have 12 places available per session and they fill up fast! Sessions run one Saturday afternoon per month during term-time. Contact us if you're interested in joining.
