Deafness workshops to celebrate Deaf Awareness Week

Our Trust is celebrating Deafness Awareness Week 2017 (15-21 May) in partnership with ARCH Recovery College, Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, Middlesbrough Mind and Stockton Mind by holding two deaf awareness workshops.

Two, three hour workshops will be held for our service users, carers, their families and Trust staff to attend.  Both workshops will include basic deaf awareness training - including British Sign Language practice, the impacts of deafness on wellbeing and health and the deaf recovery package “All about Me” – identity/communication.
