The charity's objectives are

  • To advance the education of children and young people with a hearing impairment. 
  • To promote deaf awareness and support the needs of deaf children.

We are a registered charity which has been running since 1993. As a local group we aim to provide a fun and informal way for deaf children and their families within Swindon & North Wiltshire to meet each other through running events, such as our recent Christmas pantomime and soft play events.

This allows a support network to be formed between parents of deaf children and gives the children the opportunity to socialise with other deaf children. We also aim to promote deaf awareness within the local community, advance the education of deaf children, and provide support and information as required to deaf children and their families.

The Swindon & North Wiltshire DCS is an affiliated local group of the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) and is part of a wider network of NDCS local groups throughout the UK.


Our main activities include

  • Running events for deaf children & their families
  • Providing peer support to families with deaf children
  • We work to raise deaf awareness in our local communities
  • We also work closely with audiology and other professional organisations involved in the day to day care of our children. We advise and provide feedback on the services they offer and have professional members on our committee
  • Our members can bid for funding to undertake activities that support the charities aims
