Deaf Welcome Here

The London Development Agency has funded a project called Welcome Hear, run by the Royal Association for Deaf People. RAD say –

Are you Deaf and do you work in London?
Do you have communication problems at work?
Do you have problems with your Access to Work contract?
Do the people that you work with need some Deaf Awareness training?
If the answer to any of these questions is “YES”, we can help!!

We can give your work colleagues free basic Deaf awareness training
We can give your work colleagues free basic sign language training
We can explain to your employer how Access to Work can support you at work
We can help you to apply for Access to Work
We can help you sort out your Access to Work problems

(This looks like a good deal! Who HASN’T had problems with Access to Work or ignorant colleagues?)

The audiologist I saw the other day told me that Access to Work is no longer available because they don’t need to help people buy digital aids anymore. DO you know if this is true?
I’m off to Soundbase in Exeter to look at ALDs but I’ll bet that most of them will be out of my pocket 😦

I’m so pleased to have found your blog – yours and your dogs are very entertaining (and informative!).

With Access to Work, it all depends on the case that you argue – whatever assistance you request, you have to prove that you need it to enable you to carry out your job.
