National Deaf Children’s Society

The National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.

Today there are 1.6 million children in the UK experiencing hearing loss. We believe that every deaf child should be valued by society and have the same opportunities as any other child.

NDCS helps deaf children achieve their full potential by providing impartial practical and emotional support to them and their families, and by challenging governments and society to meet their needs.

We provide parents with unrivalled information and support on all aspects of childhood deafness. This includes a free membership service, a wide range of events, helpline support, and one-to-one advice from a family officer.

We represent all deaf babies, children, young people and their families, regardless of their level of deafness or communication approach.
