Deafness Resource Centre - Children and Family Services (I CAN project)

The I CAN project is a brand-new project delivered by the Deafness Resource Centre, working across Merseyside to support people of all ages who experience deafness and hearing loss.

The project is aimed at supporting families from the point of diagnosis and throughout their journey by providing impartial information and guidance on issues relating to a range of situations. The services are available across St Helens, Liverpool, Knowsley, Halton and Sefton offering support through a total communication approach.

The project will also involve delivering fun and engaging activities for children and young people that can help to increase confidence and motivation and provide opportunities to meet new people and engage with their peers.

The I CAN project will provide support for the whole family delivering activities such as family sign sessions, social groups and Happy Hands a family support group for children under 10 years old and their carers.

Families can access support via a referral form, referrals can come from organisations or self referral.
