What is the Buzz?

It’s the only website for deaf young people aged 8 to 18 in the UK. The Buzz is a safe, online space created by deaf young people for deaf young people. Our new features mean that deaf young people now have a platform where they can read inspiring stories, connect with others like them, find the latest information and support, sign up to events, ask questions and get involved.

Let their animation tell you more…


Why have they created the site?

NDCS say they listened to 1,500 deaf children and young people about the services they’d like from NDCS. 90% of them said they wanted a dedicated website just for them. As a result, NDCS created the Buzz and split it into two sections – one for children aged 8 to 12 and another for teenagers aged 13 to 18.​​​​​​​

What’s next?

NDCS are urging professionals to share this news with the families and deaf young people you work with and encourage them to sign up and get involved. There are 50,000 deaf young people across the UK, and NDCS want the children you work with to know that they are not alone and that they can succeed at whatever they want to.
