NDCF Upcoming Events

Don’t miss out on our brilliant free events.

We have lots coming up over the next few months, including our programme for deaf children and young people aged 8–18, and support and information events for families with deaf children. Our events take place all over the UK, so there’s bound to be something near you. For example, in addition to the First Time Away Weekends below, we have more youth events taking place over the next few months – see here for details.

A young person who came to one of our events said: “I really enjoyed myself and boosted my confidence skills in presenting and working in groups! I have felt safe and the happiest I have been because… I am with people who understand me and how I feel. I got all the info and advice from the staff and volunteers that I needed.” A parent who attended an information event said: “Thank you for all the time, information and exposure to other families in a similar situation.” If you have any feedback, please share it on Facebook .

Take a look at our September 2016–March 2017 events calendar to see our full range of events.

If you have any questions, our friendly team is here to help.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes,
