Bridget backs a better deal for deaf children

Bridget visited the National Deaf Children’s Society, based in Dufferin Street EC1, this week.

The society provides advice and support to parents of deaf children and deaf children themselves, including providing grants, family support officers and running weekend events where families can meet others in the same situation.

Bridget says:

“The National Deaf Children’s Society does a fantastic job and has made great advances such as the newborn hearing screening programme. But babies are waiting too long for rapid referrals to specialists: about 70 London babies a year miss out.

There is still a long way to go. The Labour Government risks letting deaf children and their families down, in health and in education.

Deaf children must have the same opportunities as non-deaf children, including access to good schools able to provide them with the support they vitally need.”

In Islington South & Finsbury

Bar chart: it's Lib Dem or Labour here

The Conservatives, Greens and UKIP can't win in Islington South. Voting for them will just help Labour to win again. Only the Lib Dems can beat Labour in our area.
