About Us

Vision

To be the leading deaf youth organisation in Northern Ireland, providing quality services to meet the needs of deaf children and young people.

 

Mission

To support deaf children and young people in reaching their full potential by delivering a continuum of youth work, employability, training, intervention and transitions support services.

 

Values

We believe deaf children and young people are equal citizens and should be provided with opportunities to maximise their full potential and to develop holistically as positive citizens living in Northern Ireland. We aim for the core values in the Northern Ireland Youth Work Curriculum to be intrinsic to the lives of deaf children and young people.

 

Equity

We believe deaf children and young people should be treated fairly and with respect in all walks of life. We will treat every deaf child or young person with respect and seek to promote their well-being and development.

 

Diversity

We recognise that deaf children and young people will have cultural and language differences. We will continuously provide opportunities to promote diversity and inclusion to enable deaf children and young people to participate and integrate fully in society.

 

Interdependence

We believe deaf children and young people will unlock their full potential by working with others and developing new life skills in a supportive learning environment. We will continuously provide opportunities for deaf children and young people to connect and to have a say in matters they face as a result of their deafness.
