We are the National Deaf Children's Society, the leading charity for deaf children. 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.
Just like everyone else, a deaf child longs for laughter, learning and fun. They want the same things as other children – but all too often they are let down.
Every week, 34 children in the UK are born deaf – and the barriers that hold them back can be huge. Imagine being bullied because you're different or struggling because your school doesn't know how to help. Imagine missing out on what your friends are saying – feeling left out and alone.
We can break down the barriers deaf children face – but we can't do it without you. If we don't act now deaf children may lose out on their childhood, and grow up believing they'll never succeed.
Together we can stop deaf children being treated unfairly, and we can stop them being robbed of vital support. Please help us make sure deaf children have the same opportunities as everyone else.
