Missed the live event?

Are you a professional working with deaf young people (aged 13 to 25 years) who are beginning to think about moving into employment or gaining work experience? 

Discover inspirational and useful information to help you support deaf young people as they transition from school, college, or university into employment.

Deaf people work in a wide range of roles from doctors to musicians to electricians. With the right support deaf people can work everywhere but are twice as likely to be unemployed as their hearing peers. Deaf young people are poorly informed about their rights and the support available to them in the workplace. However, through your support we can together make a difference in closing the employment gap.

Our 2020 online conference, Starting Out: Supporting Deaf Babies, Children and their Families in the Early Years.

Five babies are born deaf every day in the UK. We know they can do anything other children can do, given the right support from the start. Families and carers have the greatest influence on a child's outcomes but they need your support to access clear, balanced information and make informed choices.

Our online conference will highlight best practice and guidance and give you practical ideas for supporting deaf children and their families.
