Free Deaf Awareness Workshops

A fantastic offer of Free Deaf Awareness Workshops that we are offering to 11 London boroughs public sector organisations to help raise deaf awareness in their area

The boroughs this offer is currently available for include Redbridge, Newham, Barking & Dagenham, Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham, Camden, Westminster, Hackney, Islington and Lambeth.

Usually these Deaf Awareness Workshops would cost around £350, however we are excited to be able to offer a free, two hour workshop on Deaf Awareness for up to 20 people per organisation.

Our two hour FREE Deaf Awareness workshop will introduce the issues and barriers faced by deaf people and in turn highlight strategies to improve your employees' understanding of the challenges facing deaf people and improve their communication skills with colleagues, customers and service users who are affected with a hearing loss.

We will come to you, saving time and energy on your part and ensuring your employees gain the best experience possible to support them in understanding Deaf Awareness, in their own working environment.

To run a successful workshop EDS will provide a Teacher and a BSL interpreter and send an email in advance to the designated person at time of booking, detailing the agenda for the workshop and any handouts needed to be printed for the participants.
All we ask from you is to print out a number of copies of the agenda and handouts for us and provide a projector for us to use to show our PowerPoint presentation along with a room where the chairs are arranged in a semi circle.
