Chester-based deafness charity to receive three-year funding boost from BBC’s Children in Need – The Chester Standard

A CHESTER charity which helps people with hearing difficulties has secured three years of funding from the BBC’s Children in Need.

The cash will allow Deafness Support Network (DSN) to continue to employ two specialised project workers to work intensively with D/deaf children, young people and their families.

Gill Reeder, executive operations at DSN, said: “We’re thrilled that Children in Need has again recognised the difference the project makes and how improving communication is so important for deaf children and young people to integrate within the family.”

As part of DSN’s ongoing ‘I’m Hear’ project, staff will work across the county providing home-based practical support to improve communication.

This can include different communication techniques.
