We work to overcome the social and educational barriers that hold deaf children and young people back. We give expert support on childhood deafness, raise awareness and campaign for deaf children’s rights, so they have the same opportunities as everyone else. We’re here for every deaf child who needs us – no matter what their level or type of deafness or how they communicate. We give expert unbiased support to help deaf children and their parents make informed choices about their lives.

We believe

  1. Deaf children can do anything other children can do, given the right support from the start.
  2. Effective language and communication skills lie at the heart of deaf children and young people’s social, emotional and intellectual development.
  3. Families are the most important influence on deaf children and young people, and need clear, balanced information to make informed choices.
  4. Deaf children should be involved in decisions which affect them as early as possible.
  5. Deaf children should be valued by society and have the same opportunities as any other child.
