Home / News & Opportunities / Member News

Date: 13/03/2018

We have 90 years’ experience of helping deaf people within our local communities to access services and achieve their potential.

We support deaf and hard of hearing clients and their families to maintain independent lives; such as help to engage in social activities, support with money management and housing issues, access to equipment, learning new skills and signposting to other support services.

Also we enable people with any kind of hearing loss to access Information and advice about hearing aids, assistive equipment, strategies for communication, lipreading courses, and social and support groups.

A key service we offer is the running of Nationally accredited British Sign Language, Deaf Awareness and Communication Tactics Training  courses. These can also be bespoke training in the workplace to improve front-line communication with customers and accessibility to your business.

You can book registered sign language interpreters, lipspeakers, notetakers and other communication professionals through us to ensure effective communication at any appointments, meetings, events or training days.

We also offer an equipment assessment, sales, installation and service programme to make your business more accessible for Deaf and Hearing Loss customers and employees.
Our Local centres provide a base for our services and for user groups to meet. A selection of meeting and training rooms are also available to hire.”
