CODA UK and Ireland Awareness Campaign

14 August 2014
Part of their Awareness Campaign, funded by Awards for All, CODA UK and Ireland are asking organisations if they would be interested in some of their leaflets, which they can post out free of charge, including a link to their website from organisation's website and forward their KODA Survey on to any of members or service users that are Deaf parents with Hearing children.
 
They hope with this information they will raise awareness and further develop their ability to support hearing children and their Deaf parents with issues such as bullying/discrimination and the role reversal that comes with hearing children taking on the role of carer for their parents.
 
CODA UK and Ireland are a not for profit Community Interest Company (CIC), aiming to provide: Support, Information and Guidance to CODAs (Children of Deaf Adults), of all ages, their families and the wider community. 
 
They provide services such as workshops and camps for under 18’s as well as retreats and conferences for over 18’s. They also provide face to face and remote support for families and professionals that work with them. 
 
Their library and website are filled with resources and their Board are CODAs so bring an empathetic and experiential stance to the organisation.
 
Since appearing on CBBC “My Life: Signing Off” they have had lots of Deaf parents contacting them about their KODA (Kids of Deaf Adults) workshops. They decided to do a survey to find out where they need to set up other KODA Workshops across the UK and Ireland. It may be that our members and service users might be interested in participating - click here to complete the survey.
 
If you would be interested in working with them on a project like this or you know of a similar project already, do get in touch with CODA UK.
