Who we are

Chloe’s and Sophie’s Special Ears Fund (CSSEF). CSSEF is inspired and motivated by Chloe and Sophie Jackson. Chloe and Sophie are sisters and both live in Aldershot, Hampshire.

When Chloe was 4 years old, her parents (Karen and Brian seen in the photo to the left) went along to a routine yearly hearing test. Chloe’s parents were told the words they never thought they would hear, Chloe was deaf. A question mark hung over Sophie’s hearing. After being told Sophie could hear on many occasions, her parents were told that Sophie was deaf as well.

Shortly after Chloe started school, her parents found out there was things out there that could help her hear more in the classroom and school.

Initially, CSSEF was a community fund, raising pennies to put hessian and thick pile rugs into Chloe’s classroom.  A lot of friends and family got behind the Jackson family and with this, on 21st October 2010, CSSEF was founded.

 

What we do

We are passionate about raising deaf awareness in the local community.  We do this through:

– Providing deaf awareness sessions in schools, companies, brownies, scouts and more;

– Providing deaf awareness story sacks to schools, pre-schools and nurseries;

– Providing deaf awareness classroom resource kits to junior schools;

– Providing schools, scouts, rainbows, beavers, brownies and local businesses with deaf awareness posters;

– Hosting monthly Deaf Awareness Workshops;

– Giving FREE Deaf Awareness books to school children in ‘World Book Day’ Week.

To enhance the sound acoustics we can:

– Provide hessian for the back of noticeboards;

– Provide thick pile rugs;

– Provide radio aids, soundfield systems and more to improve the sound with technology.

Provide resources and equipment to Deaf Children to support their emotional wellbeing.  We do this through:

– Weesie Pals, having a cuddly toy like them with Hearing Aid, Baha or Cochlear Implant;

– BSL After School Clubs;

– Provide suitable riding bike helmets;

– Deaf Friendly Swimming Lessons;

– Cochlear Implant Aqua Covers;

– Parents access and funding to learn BSL Level 1;

– Provide vibrating watches and alarm clocks.

 

Why we need you

£30 buys a vibrating watch to let them know to check for bubbles in their hearing aids at schools.  This provides independence and is a confidence builder.

£50 buys hessian to put behind notice boards of the whole school to reduce echo’s.

£90 pays for a term of deaf friendly swimming lessons.

£430 pays for a parent to learn BSL level 1.

£250 buys a thick pile rug to reduce echo’s.

£1400 buys a personal radio to give to a deaf child to enhance sound acoustics and also for the child’s well being in school.

£1,500 buys a Soundfield System to improve the sound acoustics for the child in school.

These are a few examples of where CSSEF really needs your help to support deaf children in school.  Do Something Amazing Today and change their education.
