Description

Conference Overview

This year’s conference will provide an update on developments in technology alongside enhancing deaf people’s experience in the work place.

We will look at how Artificial Intelligence is and can be used for the benefit of deaf people along with an update on how technology is being utilised in existing communication support such as Speech to Text Reporting. DWP will be explaining the new Technical Fund to support Assistive Technology and how it can be accessed through Access to Work. We will also hear the latest on the ATW assessment process from an independent Work Place Assessor.

Action on Hearing Loss will talk through its campaign Working for Change and we will also hear from the Business Disability Forum on how employers are including deafness as part of their diversity agenda.

Jim Fitzpatrick MP, Chair of the APPG on Deafness will provide an update on the work of the APPG. There will be an update from the UKCoD special interest group on Access to Work including implications and next steps in relation to its successful campaign to increase the funding cap. DAC (Deaf Access to Communication) another UKCoD special interest group will provide an update on its progress of its campaign to provide a full array of Telephone Relay services in UK.
