This is a last minute plea for assistance. My lovely friend Rachel blogged movingly about the Stolen Futures campaign, her son is deaf, and along with many other parents of hearing impaired children and the National Deaf Children’s Society (NCDS), she is worried about the effect cuts are having on deaf children. A survey found a third of councils are cutting vital school support for deaf children, which in turn puts pressure on parents who worry their children will fail to thrive educationally without that support.
The NCDS want 50,000 signatures on a petition calling for the government to intervene, stop these cuts and protect the future of deaf children. The petition closes in less than 48 hours and they need just a few hundred more signatures to reach their target. Could you spare a minute to sign for this important cause?
