Children's Breakout Club
Originally funded by the Shortbreaks Pathfinder Scheme, WNDA’s Break-out Club is now in its third year.
The club runs for two days each week of the school holidays, excluding bank holidays. Staff and volunteers supervise the children giving parents an opportunity to take a well deserved break.
All play staff are CRB checked and trained in Deaf Awareness and most are proficient in British Sign Language and trained in emergency first aid at work. Parents can be confident that communication is never a barrier at the Break-out Club.
The club enables Deaf and hard of hearing children to meet others with hearing loss, make new friends, gain confidence and further their independence. The club welcomes siblings, however, in the event of an activity being over-subscribed, precedence will be given to Deaf children.
Break-out Club offers a range of activities including themed craft days, street dance workshops, karting, horse riding, boxing training, golf, pottery workshops, and many, many more.
We are pleased to advise that for many of our events one-to-one support can now be provided by Sense. Sense can support children and young people that have complex needs in addition to their deafness.
Break-out Club is based in our children’s suite which is fully equipped with computers, toys, TV and Wii, CD player, room loop and soundfield systems, and messy play area.
The rooms are fully accessible for children with mobility problems and we can accommodate those with additional complex needs.
Volunteers are vital to the services that we run. Your skills, commitment and enthusiasm could make a real difference to deaf children at the Breakout Club.

My son's confidence is starting to grow and he will talk if someone talks to him first. He is now growing into a normal teenager.
