Deaf children in the North West 37% less likely to get good GCSE's

GOVERNMENT figures show that that deaf children in the North West are 37% less likely to get 5 GCSE's, including:- English and Maths, at grades A* to C2. With thousands receiving their results this month, the National Deaf Children's Society is urging the Government, local authorities and health bodies to acknowledge this issue and provide the support needed to close the gap between deaf children and their hearing friends. Jo Campion, Deputy Director of Policy and Campaigns at the National Deaf Children's Society, says:- "It's clear that deaf children are being failed. The NHS newborn hearing screening programme has been in action for ten years and that should mean that deaf children and their families get the support they need right from the start. But a decade on, that's still not happening."

The charity is particularly concerned about deaf children and young people in and around Manchester following the City Council's proposals to reduce services in the area. Hazel Badjie, Regional Director for North West England at the National Deaf Children's Society, adds:- "As school gates across the county re-open in a matter of days, Manchester City Council must reconsider their plans to cut £410,000 from vital sensory support services, leaving around 500 deaf children in the area with reduced support at a crucial time. We need an open and transparent review conducted by deaf experts, focusing on outcomes, not on costs.  Deaf children in Manchester need more support right now, not less. Ultimately, if a child is identified early as being deaf and receives good quality support in their early years, there is no reason that deaf children shouldn't achieve the same as hearing children."

New exhibition heading to Southport "The Painful Untruth"

THE Waterfront Art Gallery, Southport, is located on The Promenade, between the Ramada Hotel and the Casino, will be hosting a new photography exhibition called:- "The Painful Untruth." The photos have been taken by Merseyside based photographer Pat Hughes who said:- "My collection saying a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, so they are the same thing. The work is showing people in the same way as a caterpillar, which thought its life was over it, became a beautiful Butterfly. My view is that the same applies to people. Hence photos show how they were and what they are now. Plus I have added each one’s story attached to images." This exhibition launches on 11 September 2016 and runs for a few weeks. These are a few examples of the work that will be displayed.
