2011 - We are delighted to be supporting the DeafParenting awards which will be taking place in October in London. Deaf Parenting UK will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary with a fantastic Award event honouring the positive contributions of Deaf parents, parents to be and those professionals who work with Deaf parents.
Deaf Parenting UK is the first ever charity and small unique national organisation run by Deaf parents for Deaf parents, representing the needs of Deaf parents in the UK, of whom are sign language users and are 90% likely to have hearing children. It was set up as a project in 2001 by Sabina Iqbal and the project became an independent organisation in 2004. Sabina won Working Parent of the Year at the national annual mumandworking awards.

November 2007 - WO4LO sponsors Little Apples charity Christmas Card
We're delighted to support Little Apples pre-school in Bramley who have created a Christmas card with all the children's fingerprints as baubles on a Christmas Tree!
This card will sell to raise funds for the charity to buy more toys and equipment for the children and is one of the many ways that the parents on the committee support the pre-school.
We'd like to thank Toby at TRS Design for donating his time to create the print artwork and our friends at Brook Press for helping with the printing costs.
