Auditory Verbal UK’s ‘Belfast project’ is competing against six other projects for the ‘Best Health Project’ awarded by The National Lottery Awards.
The Belfast project was set up in collaboration with Northern Ireland based parent group The Hearing Hub. With funding from the National Lottery, the project gave Northern Ireland families access to Auditory Verbal therapy for the first time.
With dedicated therapy rooms for children and families, Auditory Verbal UK occupy CAN Mezzanine's entire Bermondsey office building.
The National Lottery Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects, and they aim to celebrate and recognise the difference that those projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK.
If AV UK win the category, the project will be featured on a BBC One show, providing the charity with the opportunity to provide further support to deaf children across the UK in the early years of their lives. Currently, only 5% of children who could benefit from AV UK services are doing so.
Support AV UK by voting online, by calling 0844 836 969 or voting on social media by Thursday 27th July.
