Asif Iqbal – Media/Project Manager of Deaf Parenting UK: “As a proud parent of two children, both under the age of 5, it is difficult to maintain the work and family life balance due to our many commitments but it is important to spend time with our children and ensure they remain the main part our life. It is so rewarding to see our children develop with dignity and pride with clear ideas of what they want to achieve and constant personal development.  We strongly support National Family week as it is a very important event to spend time with our family with other diverse families to celebrate and recognise their family life values and it is great to see their children’s joy and pride when spending time with their parents.”

Media case studies needed – can you help…?
Do you have an interesting story to tell? Do you spend time together in weird and wonderful ways? Is there something that makes your family unique? Or are you just a model picture of family life? If so, National Family Week needs you! So if you would like to appear on TV or in the paper sharing your family’s story, just send us a photo of your family and a couple of paragraphs telling us about your family, where you live and what makes your family special. Make sure you include a contact telephone number so we can find out more. Your family must be happy to talk to the media (possibly live!) and be photographed, and you must all be available between now and 8 June.

And if you do make it through to talk to the national media, we’ll give your family a brand-new, state-of-the-art Flip Video Shoot & Share camcorder! You’ll never miss one of those precious family moments ever again!  Please email your details ASAP to Rob at:
