TOWN families of newly-identified deaf children can attend an information and support weekend. The National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS) is holding the event at Menzies Stourport Manor, in Stourport-on-Severn, from May 12-13.

The weekend will bring together families from across the West Midlands region who have recently found out that their child is deaf, giving them the opportunity to find out about the support which is available locally and nationally.
