DPUK Press Release 30 June 2008 – welcoming Rosie Cooper MP to our board of Ambassadors

Deaf Parenting UK are delighted to welcome Rosie Cooper MP to our board of Ambassadors.

In addition to her MP background, Rosie is also well-known as CODA (child of Deaf adult) and delighted to share her experiences of growing up with her deaf parents and the struggles her deaf parents faces. For this reason, she is supporting Deaf Parenting UK work in campaigning for Deaf parents to have equal access to services without any barriers.

We are also delighted to have support from Anne McGuire, Minister for Disabled people, who recognised the uniqueness of our work at Deaf Parenting UK.

Furthermore, we continue to receive support and recognition of our work from Makhosini P. Makhubu, Executive Director of Swaziland National Association of the Deaf in Africa and Dr Gary Morgan, co-director of DCAL – Deafness, Cognition and Language research centre in UK.

Please see the press-release for their comments on Deaf Parenting UK and our work. We continue to work with our partners organisations in enabling confidence, empowering and supporting Deaf parents in UK and strive to be a model of good practice on international level.

If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me by email.
