Supporting Deaf people and those with acquired hearing difficulties to live independent lives

Growing up in a hearing world can be challenging for young people with hearing loss and their families.

At West Norfolk Deaf Association we are passionate about supporting people of all ages with all levels of hearing loss, so we have created a wide range of activities, groups, and events designed to help those living with hearing loss live their most fulfilled lives.

We also have a fully accessible, purpose-built young persons' room in our Deaf Centre in Kings Lynn. It has a vast range of sensory equipment and technology suitable for children of all ages, and can be hired out for private groups or events.
