Breaking Down Barriers Workshop

Breaking Down Barriers Workshop

A workshop for professionals working in Surrey run by Sensory Services by Sight for Surrey.

The session aims to gain an overview, understanding and appreciation of inclusion, accessibility and independence for and with people who are Deaf, hard of hearing, blind, partially sighted and deafblind.

This workshop will inspire and empower you to become a champion for access and inclusion in Surrey, helping to break down barriers so everyone can embrace an independent life at home, at work and in our communities.

With personal insight into everyday lived experience, its challenges and opportunities, you’ll learn about the practical support available, accessible technology and communications and how we work with adults and children across Surrey.

Programme includes:

  • Vision impairment awareness, including a ‘sighted guide’ taster
  • Deaf and hard of hearing awareness sessions
  • Understanding combined sight and hearing loss and the deafblind experience
  • Accessible technology, resources and developments, including equipment demos
  • Overcoming barriers to access and inclusion discussion
  • The work of Sensory Services by Sight for Surrey
  • Light lunch and refreshments.
