Working with deaf people and their families.

Claire Johnson

Founder and Chief Executive of Genie Networks

Claire founded Genie Networks in 2005. Genie Networks is a deaf-led, parent-led professional organisation based within Greater Manchester which strives to improve the quality of life for deaf people and their families. Genie Networks works in partnership with children and families to develop independence and promote a positive perception of deafness. Genie Networks is a non-political, non-campaigning organisation. Claire works in partnership with organisations to remove barriers that cause discrimination. It is Claire's belief that social inclusion, full participation in society and individual choice are fundamental human rights.

Genie Networks is a registered Charity providing information, guidance and social care support for children and families with deafness in the Greater Manchester area and specialist training courses for the wider community. Genie Networks offers a wide range services for children, young people and professionals. Genie Networks services include the Genie Training Academy and our Children and Families Services.

We have services for Adults, Children and Families and an excellent Training Academy.  We have something for everyone whether you are a parent of a deaf child, a deaf parent, a child of deaf parents, a deaf adult, a professional partner organisation, student or a member of the public.  The term deaf used on our information includes those who are deaf, hard of hearing, mild hearing loss, hearing impaired, speech user, lipreader, sign language user.  Everyone is welcome!

There is always so much going on at Genie Networks, to make sure you don't miss out you could join our mailing list to receive regular updates and information, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.  Also check out our volunteering opportunities - are there any fundraisers out there?
