Deaf Awareness and Sign Language (Cohort 1)

This workshop is for all staff (clinical and non-clinical) in the North Cumbria health and care system. 


Award-winning Signs4Life is leading efforts towards a society in which people with disabilities have full access, and are working to raise the public and political awareness of disability provision.

CLIC has collaborated with Signs4Life to bring you three virtual Deaf Awareness and Sign Language workshops. We hope that many of our colleagues across health and care will be able to join and benefit from these fantastic sessions. 


Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify the barriers that deaf and hard of hearing people face
  • List the ways in which deaf and hard of hearing people communicate
  • Understand and demonstrate how to implement positive methods of communication, and offer an equal service to deaf and hard of hearing people
  • Apply the finger-spelling alphabet
  • Explore the deaf community and culture


The session will take place via Microsoft Teams, and a link will be emailed to registered delegates a few days in advance.
