We can provide information and advice on deaf issues, run workshops and training, provide social support and improve access to recreational facilities and improve the opportunities available to deaf families. We will also work with other agencies to assist in any aspect of family life!
We run a variety of family activities and kids activities each year, including BSL lessons and a BSL choir and coffee mornings. We enable peer groups for the children and support for parents allowing families in similar circumstances to meet and share experiences.
