Victoria and her husband Steve have three daughters, Sade, Topaz and Tallulah. Sade was diagnosed with a profound hearing loss when she was two years old and received a cochlear implant at three years, two months. Topaz, who is two years younger than Sade, was also born with a profound hearing loss, which was diagnosed at two months old. Both sisters were taught to listen and speak at Auditory VerbalUK and attend mainstream school. Sade and Topaz presented our Power of Speech event at the House of Commons in 2016 and are now young ambassadors at Auditory VerbalUK.

The family are based in Wiltshire. If you would like to request to speak with Victoria about her experience, please email beth.cardwell@avuk.org
