FOLLOWING a successful Deaf Awareness Week, a Warrington-based charity is calling for businesses and organisations to become ‘deaf champions’.

Deafness Support Network (DSN), which offers support services for those affected by deafness, are encouraging businesses to improve their ‘equality of communication’ and offer specialist services to deaf people.

Organisations interested in becoming ‘deaf champions’ can undergo training by DSN, which will explain the challenges faced by deaf and hard of hearing people day-to-day, before guidance on how to improve.
