Welcome to the Phoenix Group


The Phoenix Group for Deaf Children & Young Adults is a charity working with deaf children, young people and their families, based in Stevenage and supporting their members in Hertfordshire.

The charity is based in Stevenage and many activities happen at our acoustically treated centre at the Hyde Out. However we also provide activities across Hertfordshire with the aim to be accessible to all families. We understand that access is difficult for some families and young adults and we may be able to help if this is the case, please get in touch.

The Phoenix Group is affiliated to the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) and although our work is independent of the NDCS, this website gives you links to information on their website as it is relevant and of shared interest.

We welcome anyone with any degree of hearing impairment (hearing loss) /deafness. We have a range of events, workshops and fun activities that we do together, so come and join us!


For ALL bookings, please complete the online registration form. You will only need to complete this information once. Please save your user name and password as it will be required every time you make a booking.



We've tried to make this website as deaf-friendly as possible. If you spot a blue hands icon at the top left of the page you are viewing, clicking on the link will display a BSL video translation of that page.
