Stoke and North Staffordshire Deaf Children's Society

Welcome to the SNSDCS

Inspiring and supporting deaf children, young people and their families across North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent

Who we are

The Stoke & North Staffordshire Deaf Children’s Society is a local group offering support to families with children or young people who are affected by hearing impairments, ranging from mild to profound deafness.The society is run by parents and carers of deaf children and works closely with local health and education professionals.

What we do

As 90% of deaf children are born into families with no history of deafness, finding early support is vital. We understand the difficulties that may be faced, especially when a child is first diagnosed.We run a series of events, clubs, courses and fundraising activities throughout the year which are all free or subsidised by the society.Our events and groups offer a welcoming platform for hearing impaired children and their families to socialise and share experiences and knowledge. They are also a valuable way for hearing impaired children to meet and know that they are not alone.


We are funded solely by the generous donations that we receive and the fundraising activities that we take part in. If you would like to make a donation to the SNSDCS then please contact us using the form below.
