CHILD Deaf Youth Project

CHILD (an acronym for Child Hearing Impairment & Language Development) Deaf Project is a deaf led registered charity organisation which is also registered with OFSTED. CDYP was originally established in 1996, working for the benefit of all deaf and hard of hearing children and young people within the Tees Valley area (which is made up of the five boroughs of, Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton, and Redcar & Cleveland).

The project wishes to empower deaf young people, to make informed decisions about their future, reach their full potential and lead the way for them to become valued members of their communities, taking their rightful place within mainstream society. They aim to encourage and enable deaf children and young people to build their confidence, self-esteem and develop a positive identity. The project does this by enabling young people to develop the skills and confidence needed to lead independent adult lives.

The project has secured funding from BBC Children In Need and others and continue to go from strength to strength. Their staff are committed in their focus on providing services and activities for D/deaf and hard of hearing young people living in our area and improving their opportunities in life.
