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

There are over 45,000 deaf children living in the UK. There is no reason why the majority of deaf children should achieve any less than hearing children. But, without the right support, deaf children and young people are vulnerable to isolation, abuse, bullying, poor self-esteem and low levels of achievement.

Deaf Child Worldwide is our international development wing. It’s the leading UK-based international development agency dedicated to enabling deaf children to overcome poverty and isolation.


We’re here for deaf children and young people, and their parents or carers, whenever they need us. We provide information, advice and guidance, events and activities, and access to local support networks.

We provide information, resources and training for professionals working with and providing services for deaf children and young people.

We challenge the decision-makers responsible for local and national services to ensure that the right support is available for all deaf children and young people.
