Young Adults

As children we can't wait to grow up, but when we are there it's a big world! Our young adult groups focus upon learning about ourselves and spending time with others our age.

The group welcomes all technology wearers who are using spoken English.  For learning sessions we can provide Sign Support English.  We run a leadership training course which is a great fun weekend residential and gives an Ear Foundation certificate for University and the workplace.

We practise what we learn together through volunteering and mentoring opportunities during The Ear Foundation residentials and family sessions.  It's all about empowering and belonging, about learning and growing, and of course sharing and being friends together.
