The group gives young deaf people the chance to build their communication skills and friendships outside of school with others facing the same barriers. The group is a supportive environment, where no one is left out and most importantly, you get to have fun!

We achieve this through weekly activities, events throughout the summer holidays, drop-ins, sports, family days, community integration projects, achievement and involvement projects and a youth council with organisation and leadership roles.

We have an established Youth Council, which ensures that young people are always at the heart of the process and play an active role in the planning and delivery of the service. We are also always looking for deaf role models and volunteers to get involved , showing young people that being affected by deafness does not need to restrict your choices and opportunities in life.
