Would like to give you an update on children and young people's programme at the BDA's 125 years congress, in Torquay

So far we have children (age 6 - 13 years) registered and we have few places left!

BDA will be offering a programme for 3 days (on Thursday, Friday and Saturday) we will be offering plenty of activities on and off site - including a trip to the Dinosaur World and Water park. We will be doing "it's a knockout" on site and children will be asked to do 15 minute performed at the closing ceremony on Sunday morning - plenty of activities to do!

Thanks to sponsorship from Visual Language Professionals and Deaf Independent - we will be providing a party for children and young people on Saturday night (from 7pm to 10pm) - so you can enjoy yourselves at the Gala

The cost is £75 per child (for 3 days) which includes activities, resources, offsite trip (include lunch) or £30 per day per child. All staff who are running the programme are all DBS / CRB checked and have received safeguarding training
