Talking Hands evolved into a provision to meet the needs of deaf children and families. They now have a mother and toddler group, a junior youth group, a senior club and are supporters and mentors of Deffo! the Welsh Youth Forum, which is committed to challenging access, training, and education. Talking Hands Project Manager Helen says, "VIY has been a great experience for our young people and indeed for me to find out new things about my young people."

VIY activity at the club

The Talking Hands project is well under-way with some great mentors. The works are primarily painting and decorating.
