Children and Young People Service

The Children and Young People Service is an integral part of BID Services' provision for the communities we serve. The core purpose is supporting the education, personal and social development of children and young people to enable them to reach their full potential and make a successful transition into adult life. We aim to provide consistent and appropriate support to young people whilst effectively addressing their needs such as helping them to make informed choices about their lives without worrying about language or cultural barriers.

We currently provide the following services:

BIRMINGHAM

Holiday Activities
We organise a number of holiday activities for deaf children and their siblings. Activities range from climbing, sailing, eco work, volunteering with the National Trust, jungle challenge, toboganning, orienteering and so much more!

We also run a private Facebook group for parents, young people and children to receive updates on accessible activities or events being held in Lincolnshire.


Information & Advice
We can give advice and signpost into other services. Because of working closely together with other families, we can also connect family members together, so first hand experiences with another parent, carer, sibling, aunt, uncle, or grandparent can be shared.
