The National Deaf Children's Society is an organisation of parents, families and carers which exists to support parents in enabling their child to maximise their skills and abilities; and works to facilitate this process by every means possible. Its fundamental role is to advocate for parents and carers as and when appropriate, whilst at all times ensuring the child's welfare is paramount.
Action on Hearing Loss is the new name for the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID). It is the largest charity representing the 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK. The aims of the RNID are to achieve a radically better quality of life for deaf and hard of hearing people.
