Deaf Awareness Training

Access Bedford can provide your staff with the tools they need to break down barriers and enable smoother communication with your D/deaf and Hard of hearing clients, find out more below.

We can offer bespoke Deaf awareness training at your place of work, at an agreed venue, or online via Zoom or Teams. The 3hr session will include an overview of D/deaf culture/ history, examples of barriers and discrimination that D/deaf and Hard of Hearing people face, an introduction to some everyday BSL signs, fingerspelling, and numbers. The session is fun and interactive and there might even be a little bit of drawing thrown in!
