Wanted- Arts and Crafys items for Activity Boxes for Deaf Children in Bradford

I am writing of behalf of Bradford Deaf Children's Society based at Bradford Deaf Centre.

We used to meet up every Wednesday evening and offer the deaf children (age 8+) and their siblings who may be in a different school a chance to get together/ build better relationships in a safe comfortable environment away from home as well as meeting up with their other deaf school friends away from school.

Our group organized activities and celebrations that help bring families together as well as the opportunity for the parents to share ideas/concerns and information. Our activities are funded through donations and grants.

It allowed siblings, some who are young carer's themselves to have a chance to have fun as well, in some cases, bonding with the deaf person in the family and give the parent's ideas of what they can do has a family.

Since the Lockdown situation and the many changes, we have to deal with, we have not been able to meet up for the weekly sessions and a lot of the families have been isolated due to the services for their children been suspended.

It has been hard for children with additional needs to understand it all fully. It is has affected not just the deaf child but the siblings with lots of conflicts and behavior issues as well as impact on their mental, social, emotional and physical health.

No family is the same. Every family has a different scenario they face with the deaf young person especially when making them aware of the difficult situation we are facing with the pandemic.

We would like to alleviate some of these issues in the best possible way and would like to put a request in for some Creative Art and Craft items etc to do some Activity Boxes to give the deaf children to do together at home. It will put a smile on their faces and will reassure the families that we are thinking about them during the festive period.

If you able to deliver any item, the address is Bradford Deaf Community Association, Hallfield Road, Bradford, BD1 3RP It would be most appreciated. Please phone the Centre beforhand or you could message me to see if i could collect them off you.

Thank You in advance.
