We are very pleased to announce that Signature have been shortlisted in this year’s North East Business Awards for the Durham & Wearside Heart of the Community Award.
In Summer 2015 all health and social care organisations will be required to adhere to the Accessible Information Standard, what does this mean for your organisation? The Standard is a new guidebook for health and social care organisations across England which is a set of rules which organisations must follow to ensure deaf people get appropriate communication support and information in the right format for them.
Providers of communication support said the needs of people with a hearing loss are more diverse than in the past and forecast them to become more so.
Sense are a national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind or have sensory impairments. As part of their volunteering campaign, the Get Out There (GOT) Group are currently looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers to offer a few hours of their time each week to help deafblind young people.
