The event is part of the National Deaf Children’s Society’s Me2 Deaf-Friendly Pledge to ensure that deaf children can fully access activities.

Snow sports provider. Snowbility, is just one of the organisations that has committed to the initiative.

Arran said: “Many deaf young people like myself face barriers but with the right support deaf children and young people can achieve anything their hearing peers can.”
