B.S.L Community's Specialist Parenting Service provides direct parenting support to Deaf Families.

Social Care Services who are not culturally aware of underlying issues affecting deaf families, will miss valuable information, and tools to help address issues appropriately.

 

Our Parenting Mentors who are Deaf and/or Sign Language users, parenting trained with significant experience in frontline Children and Family work, are able to provide direct support that meets the Deaf family’s educational and cultural needs.
