Empowering Deaf Society (EDS) is a deaf-led Charity, dedicated to improving the quality of life for deaf people.

Central to our aim is equal access, ensuring that standards improve for deaf people is imperative, access to information, justice and knowledge is key for any society to succeed.  We want to bring about a change and work towards an integrated and cohesive society.

At EDS we are excited to be able to offer you a free workshop on Deaf Awareness via Zoom if you work in the public and charitable sectors.

Our Deaf Awareness workshop consists of two one hour Zoom sessions.

First part, a one hour presentation introducing the issues and barriers faced by deaf people whilst highlighting strategies to improve your understanding of the challenges facing deaf people and improving your communication skills with colleagues, customers and service users who are affected with a hearing loss.

Followed by another one hour zoom session giving you an Introduction to British Sign Language Skills to use when communicating with the Deaf Community.

These sessions can be booked to run concurrently or split over different times and days.
