A world without barriers for deaf children and young people
Reading Deaf Children's Society (RDCS) & South East Berkshire Deaf Children's Society (SEBDCS)
We are delighted to let you know that the members of RDCS and SEBDCS voted unanimously in favour of the two charities merging and the formation of Berkshire Deaf Children’s Society. We will all be working hard over the coming weeks and months to complete the legal and practical processes.
Our children are often excluded from the simplest and most basic social interaction with other children because of communication difficulties or misunderstandings about deafness. This often leads to frustration and feelings of isolation.
Our events programme brings deaf children together with their families in an atmosphere of support, where their deafness is not an issue and they can just have fun in a stress-free environment. We try to run events that aren’t so readily available for deaf children like canoeing, horse riding, sno-tubing, and specialised fun days to name a few.
We aim to run our events programme at the lowest cost possible to members, with many events being free.
We also run fundraising events such as pub quizzes and ceilidhs. These are a great chance for mums, dads and other family members to get together and have some fun of their own!
