Our event at Parliament in 2018. We took families and deaf young people to talk to MPs about tackling the funding crisis in deaf education.
Thanks for making a difference to deaf children
We value your opinions and always try to act on the information you give us – whether that’s through our membership survey, one of our polls, or an evaluation of an event.
Your views make a real difference – here’s how:
You put pressure on the Government
In October, thanks to you answering some quick questions about your child’s audiology service, we made a brilliant piece with Channel 5 News. This highlighted what you think the biggest problems are, and what the Government needs to do to improve them.
You fought for deaf children’s rights
In November, we asked you about cuts to deaf education. Your incredible response made Channel 4 News, The Guardian and Times Educational Supplement. We took your answers to the Minister responsible and argued for more money for deaf children’s education.
You kept us on track
In our 2018 membership survey you told us what matters to your family and how you think support for your child can be improved. We’re focusing our efforts on what’s important to you – including fighting for better services, campaigning for local authorities to provide radio aids and planning for a careers campaign.
Look out for our 2019 membership survey, which launches on 6 February. It’s another chance to set the agenda – so please don’t stop sharing your views.
