Deaf Awareness

How do I get the message across to people?

As a volunteer for Action On Hearing Loss I feel that it is important to make the people around me, aware of the amazing work that this charity does.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, check out the following link here.

In the past, I have worked alongside this charity and delivered presentations to different organisations with a fellow volunteer. This was to educate the audience about the charity, technology advances for Deaf people and then speaking about my personal experiences.

I realised that my personal story was well received by the audience as it intrigued many people.

I now deliver deaf awareness presentations to different organisations on a variety of topics:

  • Providing staff training to support the needs of a Deaf student - I can deliver these in different education establishments from, primary school settings to universities! - Deaf people can achieve with the correct support provisions in place!

  • Raising awareness from a Deaf persons perspective- I speak about my deafness journey and my struggles and successes. There will be an opportunity for questions at the end.

  • Early Years/Key Stage 1 anti bullying presentation and quiz activity- Explaining to children at a young age to help them grow up understanding equality and diversity. We are all different!

  • Deaf awareness activities are included to help individuals understand the difficulties Deaf people can face, e.g. group scenarios.

  • Educating people in the workplace- This is to help reduce barriers in the work place, by educating employees and employers about the difficulties Deaf people face and tips to overcome these. 

I am interested to speak in any establishment that may not be listed. I am always more than happy to adapt my presentations to suit my intended audience of different age ranges.

If you are interested in me delivering a presentation in your establishment. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.

I also welcome any suggestions you may have for me regarding my presentations!
