Led by our Community Development Coordinators, our service has been working closely with our local Deaf community to understand their barriers in accessing advice and support.
As a result, we have taken a number of actions, including working with the Specialised Deaf Service to produce a unique pathway to ensure we jointly work with this service in undertaking diagnostics. Deaf/BSL service users can now use a self-referral pathway to access our service.
We have also produced an Easy Read version of our Service Leaflet, which can be found here (or by clicking the title of this article).
And finally, we have also produced a BSL version of the Service Leaflet which you can find in the video below:
