We are now taking bookings for our sensory awareness training in 2019. Our sensory awareness training is a great introduction to sight loss, hearing loss, and dual sensory loss.

Some facts:

  • More than 11 million people in the UK have some form of hearing loss
  • There are almost two million people in the UK living with sight loss.
  • There are approximately 250,000 people in the UK with both hearing loss and sight loss. Of these 220,000 are aged 70 or ever.

Our training takes you through the main causes of sight loss, looking at eye conditions, eye health and equipment. We also look at the main causes of hearing impairment, hearing aids and other treatments and look at dual sensory loss, where sight loss and hearing loss combine.

With tips for communication, sighted guiding and BSL our sensory awareness training is a great introduction to understanding and communicating more effectively with people who live with sight loss, hearing loss or both.

We are able to offer training to organisations across Yorkshire and the costings would be £40 per head for a bitesize training or £500 for a half day training course which would take a maximum of 10 people.

We are currently taking bookings for January, February and March 2019.
