Supporting and empowering deaf children 
for a brighter future.

What if deaf children could live in an equal world not made of systemic
barriers but of unrestricted opportunities to reach their true potential in life?

In the UK there are c52,800 deaf children.  In England 77% of school-aged deaf children attend mainstream schools.* 

Deaf people are twice as likely to have poor mental health compared to the general population, and more likely to be unemployed - 65% versus 79%**

As a society we can do it...

With a change in mindset we can revolutionalise the experience of life and learning for deaf children. Innovation and technology can be unleashed to benefit not just deaf children but society at large.

There are many practical, sustainable and accessible options available that are exciting and easily adopted....and we can show you how!

Our Vision

Our goal is simple, we want deaf children to flourish. 
We want to rebrand disability and re-align it with a positive deaf image.
We will do this by facilitating access to learning, boosting technology in education and promoting deaf awareness in society.
We want to create a Sonic Boom!

"My perception and vision are quite good and that gives me a wicked sixth-sense...I try to think that my hearing loss is part of my ability, not disability."
