There are three public forum meetings each year focusing on issues related to hearing impairment. These meetings are open to anyone who has a hearing impairment, their families and anyone else who wants to find out more about related aspects. In addition to interesting speakers there is an opportunity for discussion over coffee and tea. We always have a BSL translator at forums to allow sign language users full involvement, we also have a loop system operating for hearing aid wearers. The venues we use all have parking and disabled facilities.
We run a Deaf Aware stall which is taken to various venues around the county. The stall has information boards and leaflets to give away. It is usually staffed by hearing impaired volunteers who have first hand experience of the problems faced.
We represent the hearing impaired community on a number of committees related to disability issues.
We take forward concerns raised by forum members to the pertinent bodies, inviting representatives to speak at forums to address those concerns if appropriate.
We can provide a speaker to talk to interested groups about deaf awareness, contact us to arrange dates and times.
