We are excited to hear about this new publication from Deafblind International’s Youth Network. It’s focus is on stories of resilience during COVID. Share this with everyone you know!

Hello from Deafblind International Youth Network!

I am pleased to attach the 2021 Deafblind International Youth Network publication.

Young deafblind people live their lives in many different ways. Their choices and decisions are influenced by many things including where they live, their culture and heritage.

Being deafblind in a seeing, hearing world creates challenges. In 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic created even greater challenges.

Are these dealt or coped with in different ways in different countries? This collection of stories provides a unique insight into of how young deafblind people have lived their lives in a new unpredictable world’

I am most humble to those who have contributed, sharing such personal experiences of the pandemic.

A limited number of hard copies are available. Please email your postal address to simon.allison@sense.org.uk to receive a copy.

We are already planning our next publication! A collection of recipes from youth network members who want to share their International cuisine!

Enjoy the book!

Kind Wishes

Simon Allison (Youth Network Coordinator)
