Action on Hearing Loss – Northern Ireland: Check out our home safety videos for older people with hearing loss.
In June 2016 a consultation on the recommendations from the regional review of communication support services for people who are deaf or hard of hearing across Northern Ireland was launched by the Health and Social Care Board. The purpose of the consultation was to ensure that people who rely on Communication Support Services had opportunities to influence the development of the service regionally. A series of meetings, facilitated by the British Deaf Association NI, were held to enable people who are deaf or hard of hearing to express their views on a regional service model which would provide a balance of face to face interpreting and, where appropriate, non face to face interpreting.
