Welcome to the Dorset Deaf Children's Society website. We are a registered charity who organise events and activities to enable hearing impaired children, parents and families  to meet each other and share their experiences and also have some fun! 

We provide grants and equipment for hearing impaired children and their families and also provide information to help families make informed choices for their children's education and welfare.  


Membership is free for all families with a hearing impaired child living in Dorset or for supporters of hearing impaired children and their families living in Dorset.

We are associated with the National Deaf Childrens Society - to view their website use this link -
