Youth Network

Deafblind: the network is open to youth who are deafblind, multi-sensory impaired or have either sight or hearing loss alongside further disabilities.

Youth: is best understood as a period of transition from the dependence of childhood to adulthood’s independence and awareness of our interdependence as members of a community. Youth is a more fluid category than a fixed age-group.

However, age is the easiest way to define this group, particularly in relation to education and employment.
