A little about our projects - past and present
This Is Me
A national project giving deaf children the opportunity to explore their sense of identity, who they are and to present this in a way that suits them, be it through art, animation, writing, film or music, so they have the chance to say 'This is me!' in a creative and positive way.
Sex Safety First
An England-wide project working with young deaf people from age 10 upwards, providing a series of workshops and online support around Puberty, Peer Relationships, Appropriate Behaviour, Consent and Readiness, Conception and Contraception and Sexually Transmitted Infections. In addition, we are working with parents and teachers to enable them to support deaf children through adolescence. We also provide specialist deaf–awareness training for health practitioners working in sexual health clinics, surgeries and hospitals.
