Helping Hands 12 Jul 2012
This project aims to improve the confidence, self-esteem, skills and aspirations of deaf children and young people aged 10-18 in Greater London, the North East and the Midlands by supporting teachers from 18 specialist deaf schools and schools with Hearing Impaired Units to implement, run and monitor peer support schemes for beneficiaries. The project will also provide outreach social activities for deaf children and young people who are isolated in mainstream schools.
This project in West Bengal will identify and support deaf children to go to school. This will be done by working with children, their families, schools, support centres and communities to improve their ability to support them properly. By the end of the project, more children will be attending school regularly, performing better at school with measurable progress in communication, literacy and numeracy skills and have developed social/life skills to enable participation in extra-curricular activities.
The organisation provides immediate and on-going support, information, advice and advocacy for deaf children and their families through a series of initiatives including a national freephone helpline, volunteer family support networks, self-help groups, specialist technical advisors and information weekends and information days. The project will provide an information and advocacy service for deaf children and their families along with emotional and social support and peer education programmes.
