SHSH Programme - Apr to July

Due to the publicity around “The Silent Child” there have been a couple of interesting features on the BBC. The One Show on Friday 2nd March had a feature and The Breakfast Show on Wednesday 6th March at around 8.20 am. If you missed these shows you should be able to catch them on BBC iplayer or Catch Up on Sky.

They are well worth viewing.

A film starring a six year old deaf British girl  was named best live action short film in the Oscars. The link below will take you to information about the film and its

Our current project which was funded by the People’s Health Trust comes to an end on the 28th February and we would like to take the opportunity to thank them for their support. In order to fund future projects which will enable us to provide activities for deaf children/young people we need to seek new funding.

If anyone has an employer who supports donations to charities particularly local ones can you consider putting our name forward. We have been successful in the past with both the Land Registry and the Marks and Spencer in Blackpool.

Also if anyone becomes aware of any grant funding that might be available and suitable for us to apply for could you please make a member of the Committee aware.

Sign Hi Say Hi! receives no central or local government fund and relies on attracting donations and successfully bidding for grant funding to run projects to deliver activities for deaf children/young people in the area.

 

We have been successful in our application to the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. Voting will take place from Thursday 1st March to Monday 30th April. The project with the highest number of votes across our region will receive £4,000, the second place project £2,000 and the third placed project £1,000.

To vote you will need to make a purchase within store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and its not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token.

PLEASE ENCOURAGE FRIENDS AND RELATIVES TO VOTE FOR US.

Please see the stores taking part in the voting on our project.

‘Do you want to learn how to make a film? Would you like to be in a film about Sign Hi Say Hi! ? Sign Hi Say Hi! has been offered an exciting opportunity.

The University of Manchester is planning a research project filming with deaf children/young people in South Africa but they have never worked with deaf young people.They are offering our group the chance to learn film making and then be in a film about your views about your future. The film makers can learn how to work with deaf young people.

There will be two events: 11th February – learning/& making a short film. Later in year – making a longer film about your ideas about when you grow up/your future.

These events are for deaf children/YP (not siblings), aged 9 and above.

There are a limited number of places and the UoM are looking for a range of YP who use speech or BSL etc. The filming will be at the University of Manchester and maybe the UoM Museum. It is free and transport/lunch etc. will be provided. The YP will be supported by Emma from PIP and three SHSH committee members. 

The second date will be later in the year but we will check you are free. If you go to the first you need to go to the second event.

If you would like to take part, please contact Karen on 07437 335655 by Monday 23rd January. We will then let you know if there is a place or not as soon as possible. Thank you.’

About Us

We're a group of parents and those working with deaf children who want a better deal for deaf children and their families.


We feel that it is helpful to come together to share information and meet others in the same position because by coming together we are able to give support and swap ideas.


At Fylde DCS, you'll find both deaf and hearing parents with a wealth of experience of deafness. They may have experienced some of the difficulties you may be facing. We may be able to help or, if not, we can put you in touch with others who can.
