Breaking Down Barriers Workshop – 2024 Dates

What Will I Learn?

Sensory Services by Sight for Surrey is holding workshops for professionals in Surrey 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, deafblind.

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. 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.

  • 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
