This year we have organised trips to local leisure centres, archery lessons, water sports, a course of outdoor activities, a trip to the theatre and regular cinema trips for the children. For the families we have had an Easter egg hunt, a Summer fair, day trips to local parks and monthly coffee mornings for all the family with more workshops for the children. We run both our own events and work with others organisations to improve access to current community facilities. We are just about to start running a BSL choir for both children and adults and restart our BSL courses for children and adults.

This is a course that is predominately for parents and relatives of deaf children, but depending on numbers there may be spaces for friends and older children (8+) who are interested.
This will be run at Elmfield Primary School on the following dates:
The morning session will run from:
10am – 11.30am
There is also an afternoon session:
12pm – 1.30pm
Please select the time you are interested in when booking.
The cost of the four sessions is £30 for non-members and £24 for members.
(Full membership to FCDC is open to all families who either have a deaf child or a deaf parent. The current membership fee is £5 per year for a family and families can join online on our website.)
A creche with a kids BSL group will run alongside these groups.
It is essential that all of our events and activities are enjoyable, welcoming and inclusive to all and we rely on all of our families who attend to ensure this is the case. For all our family events parents will be expected to be responsible for their children at all times to ensure we have a respectful, safe and inclusive environment. If there are any concerns or anyone does not feel this is the case please approach either staff or trustees who will always be available at all events.
If it is your first time attending an event or you don’t know anyone else attending, please let the organisers know and they will link you with another parent as part of our buddy system.
If you are available to work at an event, please email Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the event you are interested in.
