The potential of our young deaf people is boundless.
Every day we see deaf young people achieving great things, and their enthusiasm and skills will make them great leaders of tomorrow.
However, decisions are being made that are putting their futures in jeopardy. We have seen restrictions to funding, early intervention, language access, and access to the Deaf community.
Through programmes such as Deaf Roots and Pride, we reach out to young deaf people, who are often isolated or low in confidence. We provide strong Deaf role models, opportunities to socialise with deaf peers, and language development. In addition, the project provides essential practical support for them, their families, and their schools.
