Our impact News Thank you for your support in 2017 2017 was an excellent year for Auditory Verbal UK. We provided therapy and support to over 150 deaf children and their families and launched our new and more generous bursary scheme so that more families have been able to access our programme. Our Listening and Spoken Language Therapists provided training to speech and language therapists, teachers of the deaf, audiologists and other health and education professionals across the UK, Europe and South Africa. We were awarded Highly Commended Charity of the Year at the Third Sector Awards and won the Model of Excellence Award from the Centre for Social Justice. Our new outreach programme, On Your Doorstep, was launched. The aim is to raise awareness of what deaf children can achieve by reaching more families and professionals across the country. We have presented our work at domestic and international conferences and worked in partnership with charities, professionals and organisations in the public and private sectors to improve outcomes for deaf children in the UK. All this was possible thanks to your support. We look forward to creating a sound future for more deaf children in 2018!
