Listen! Summer 2022 newsletter available to download
The latest issue of Listen! celebrates our achievements over the last year – leading on the front cover with the news of our recent “Outstanding” Ofsted report.
Since the easing of restrictions, the number of people benefiting from our work has steadily grown. We continue to support deaf children and their families from all over the south of England in our nursery sessions. And families and professionals from further afield are accessing our online Let’s Listen and Talk programme in greater numbers than ever before. You can read more about all our services in our Listen! newsletter.
And of course, it is always nice to hear about real people and real families. So you will enjoy hearing more about Isaac, who currently attends our preschool nursery for two sessions per week and has so much to say! You can also find out more about two of our graduates: Agatha, who is embarking on a new and exciting career in London; and Oliver, who took part in this year’s Comic Relief Red Nose Day challenge, the “Red Nose and Spoon Race” featured on BBC’s The One Show in March.
We have many partners in our work, and in the newsletter you can read more about how we are working together with various other charities, universities and organisations to support children with all degrees of deafness and their families. This includes taking part in two very exciting research studies that will benefit children and families in the future, with recent visits from researchers from DCAL-UCL.
Of course, none of our work can happen without the generosity of our supporters. Listen! also provides information about our various sources of fundraising … And if that piques your interest, you can learn about inspiring ways you, too, can support the charity through various challenges, events and opportunities.
We hope you enjoy this edition of the ‘Listen!’
