Support Ian’s Marathon

19th January 2018

On Sunday 22nd April 2018 Ian will be running the Virgin London Marathon to raise money for the National Deaf Children’s Society.

About The National Deaf Children’s Society


The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.

The National Deaf Children’s Society was founded in London on 15 December 1944 by a handful of parents of deaf children concerned about the impact of the 1944 Education Act on their schooling.

Their visions and values reflect the fact that they remain essentially a parents’ organisation, dedicated to the needs of all deaf children, their families and carers. They provide a seamless service supporting families with deaf children from birth to 25.

Things you should know

  • There are over 45,000 deaf children living in the UK.
  • 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents with little or no experience of deafness or knowledge of how to communicate with a deaf person.
  • Four babies are born deaf every day.
  • 40% of deaf children have additional needs.
  • 57% of deaf children failed to achieve 5 GCSEs (including English and Maths) at grades A* to C in 2013, compared to 30% of other children.
  • Without the right support, deaf children and young people are vulnerable to isolation, abuse, bullying, poor self-esteem and low levels of achievement.
  • Research suggests that more than 77% of school-aged deaf children in the UK attend mainstream schools where is no specialist provision and in which they may be the only deaf child enrolled.
  • Deafness is not a learning disability. There is no reason why the majority of deaf children should achieve any less than hearing children.
  • Deaf children need to be able to communicate effectively, access information and influence the world around them by any appropriate method whether through sign language, oral communication or a combination of approaches.
