The children and young peoples services award

Life & Deaf is a great example of how committed professionals can make a huge and lasting difference to children and young people‚Äôs lives. It saw a group of profoundly deaf children and young people aged six to nineteen embark on a poetry project, which culminated in the publication of a book and a DVD of poetry performed in British Sign Language. The project was led by specialist speech and language therapists Jane Thomas and Katie Martin from Greenwich Teaching Primary Care Trust. They worked closely with many other professionals in education, health, social care and creative fields across the public and private sector. Children and young people were involved at every stage of the project, which aimed to see deafness through their eyes.”
