The Elizabeth Foundation
The Pebble Beach Charitable Trust has been supporting the RNLI for the last six months, and in particular their very worthy campaign to re-build the Bembridge life boat station on the Isle of Wight. This successful period of fund raising has now drawn to a close and we now look forward to supporting The Elizabeth Foundation (Registered charity no. 293835) over the coming months.
The Elizabeth Foundation supports infants and pre-school aged children with a hearing loss and their families, by providing help, support and encouragement. It is the Elizabeth Foundation’s belief that it is the right of every deaf child to be given the opportunity to learn, to listen and talk.
When a family receives the news that their baby or young child has a hearing loss, The Elizabeth Foundation is there to help straight away. Families can self-refer, or may hear about The Foundation by recommendation from health professionals. The Foundation’s Hampshire Family Centre is a special place where teachers of the deaf provide expert help and advice in a way that suits the family best; regular “one to one” sessions, or in a group with other deaf children and their parents where fun, listening, music and language help give each deaf child the best possible start in life. Families learn about deafness, and that their children have a rich and fulfilling life ahead of them. A baby diagnosed in infancy may attend The Elizabeth Foundation for four years before starting school, and your donation helps make sure that we will continue to be there for them.
