October 2021: Meet our new Chair!

Some of you may remember me from my time as Lollipop Activity Leader, but for those who don’t yet know me, I’m Laura Walker, the new Chair of Lollipop! I’ve always been a big supporter of the charity but I’m looking forward to being able to do more in my new role. The Board of Trustees is excited for the future of Lollipop. We’re keen to work more closely and form great partnerships with other organisations for the benefit of our members and the local D/deaf community.

After 18 months of running the service online, we’re thrilled to be resuming face-to-face activities but, as with any charity, volunteers are vital to our success. Could you spare some time to help plan or run Lollipop activities or fundraising events? Would you like to share your ideas and suggestions at our committee meetings or be a great D/deaf role model for our members?

If you or anyone you know (parents/siblings/family/friends) would be interested in becoming a volunteer, please email Heidi at:

Who We are

Lollipop offers opportunities for children and young people with any degree of deafness from mild to profound and their families to meet and build friendships with others, with whom they share their experiences of deafness.

Lollipop achieves this through providing regular FREE social activities in a relaxed and informal environment.  We offer a wide range of activities in order to provide something of interest to everyone.  Through such activities we aim to encourage members to try something new, express themselves freely and realise their true potential and in doing so build confidence, increase self-esteem and develop self-identity.  Lollipop also raises awareness of deafness and its implications amongst the wider community.


Membership is FREE to any child or young person aged 0-25, in York and North Yorkshire, with any degree of deafness. Children of deaf adults (CODA) are also welcome to join the Lollipop family.

Lollipop recently secured funding from The Henry Smith Charity as part of the Improving Lives project. We are delighted to receive such a generous grant towards three year’s running costs and were very proud of the Grant Officer’s comments following the assessment’.
