Remote events

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we’re unable to provide face-to-face training so we’re offering three sessions available remotely. They’re designed to help your business understand the barriers faced by staff and customers who are deaf or have hearing loss, and the steps you can take to overcome them.

Our remote events can be booked exclusively for your business or you can join an open event with delegates from other organisations.
