Oxfordshire Deaf Children’s Society (ODCS) is a registered charity (No. 297689) that provides opportunities for families with deaf and hearing impaired children to get together for mutual support and to have fun. Most of our members are parents and we have one aim in common: the welfare of hearing impaired children and their families.

Who is ODCS for?

We welcome all hearing impaired children and young adults and their families, whatever their ethnic or religious background, who:

  • Live in Oxfordshire or the surrounding counties
  • Have any level of hearing loss, temporary or permanent
  • Use hearing aids or have cochlear implants
  • Use speech, BSL or total communication
  • May also have other additional needs. 

What does ODCS do?

  • We offer regular events for children and their families.
  • We offer social and emotional support to children and their families, listen to your anxieties and provide reassurance.
  • We help your children to have fun and develop confidence by socialising with other deaf children. 
  • We aim to support the whole family and welcome the wider family at our events.
  • We provide information and signposting, and can help you to access local services.
