Wigan & Leigh Deaf Children's Society

About Us

There are around 300 children in the Wigan area with a hearing loss. Most deaf children go to mainstream school and they are often the only deaf child in their class or even in their school. It is really important for them to grow up knowing other deaf children and that is where we come in.


We are a local charity supporting families with deaf children in the Wigan borough. We are ‘Wigan & Leigh Deaf Children’s Society’. We are affiliated to the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) and our registered charity number is 1153578.


We arrange regular activities for deaf children and their families. We offer something for children of all ages from pre-school to teenagers. We are a local source of support for deaf children and their families. 80% of deaf children are born into families with no experience of hearing loss. It is very daunting to be told your child is deaf and sharing experiences with others in the same situation as you can be really helpful.
