We are a Guernsey registered charity, established to support children to young adults with any level of hearing impairment, and their families.
We do this primarily through organising a variety of events, and activities to give the children an opportunity to have fun in the company of other children in a similar situation.
Alongside this we often supply equipment to hearing impaired members of the GDCS to help with every day life and offer guidance for families with a hearing impaired child.
Guernsey Deaf Children’s Society was formed in 1979 by a group of parents, teachers of the deaf and interested people.
The Society was set up with the main aim of helping hearing impaired children and their families, both socially and educationally.
The Society is affiliated to the NDCS, but all funds raised stay in the island to be used for the benefit of our children and their families.
The Society is run by a small committee of people, elected each year at the AGM, which covers parents, the teaching and medical professions and other interested people.
The committee meet about every six weeks to discuss various problems, fund allocations and to organise social events.
