Social & Emotional Support to Deaf Children and their Families

We provided a wide variety of fun & stimulating activities and opportunities for our deaf young people from all over the West of Scotland, to meet and mix with an age appropriate peer group while their carers enjoyed a break from their caring roles.

For many of our families the clubs provided the only social activity and meaningful peer interaction that the children and young people have, and the only break their carers are able to actually relax and benefit from.

Helps build their confidence, foster lifelong friendships, builds self esteem and helps them to see their deafness in a more positive light.
