Friends of Southport Lip-reading Group hold 2 weekly classes in Southport for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to learn lip-reading skills. Classes take place at Southport Fire Station.
The group also arrange regular social get togethers and trips to various attractions of cultural interest including the museum, theatre, cinema and also for meals out. These social gatherings enable members to feel included, less isolated and also to practice their lip-reading skills in a safe, supportive environment.
The group are now looking to secure funding to deliver weekly lip-reading classes in Formby towards the start of 2020.
