New service for people experiencing deafness and hearing loss

I CAN 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, throughout their journey, by providing impartial information and guidance on issues relating to a range of situations. It can be accessed by people in St Helens, Liverpool, Knowsley, Halton and Sefton.

Fun and engaging activities for children and young people are being delivered as part of the project. The intention of these activities is to help to increase confidence and motivation, and provide opportunities to meet new people and engage with their peers.

The I CAN project provides support for the whole family by 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).
