Event description

Description

Hearing loss should not prevent anyone from getting out and about. Accessibility is steadily improving and they are ways of managing tricky situations as you will find out at our annual conference.

Travelling abroad, attending talks or going to theatre is now much more accessible and stress free than before.

The Conference will be opened by Lilian Greenwood MP, NADP President.

We have a range of presenters from different organisations to inform what they are doing to improve the experience of deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people using their services including British Airways, the National Theatre and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

We also have deafened presenters talking about their experiences and how they have overcome the barriers they have faced, sharing their tips along the way.

There will also be information on how events such as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Museum talks can now accommodate deafened people through the use of technology.

Stagetext will be presenting and bringing their stall.

Both the morning and afternoon sessions will include panel discussions with an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences.

As usual there will be a range of stalls available for attendees to gather more information to help with your hearing loss and ask questions, and plenty of time to meet other deaf people.

Our conferences are fully accessible with Communication Support including Hearing Loop, Lipspeaker with Sign, and STTR (Speech to Text Reporter) projected onto a large screen and also to tablets for those with sight difficulties.

Confirmed Speakers include

Lilian Greenwood MP - NADP President - Chair House of Commons Transport Committee
