We are inviting feedback on the support you and your child received in the early years.

This will inform and shape our planning for early years support for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing and their families.

Why your views matter

Your views and experiences matter.  We would welcome any feedback you have about the care you and your child received in the early years so we can plan and provide the best possible care going forward.
