Ethnic Minorities – Sensory Impairment: The Journey
30th April 2014 (10am – 1:30pm), Deaf Connections, 100 Norfolk St, Glasgow, G5 9EJ
BEMIS Scotland and leading sensory support organisations, have come together to raise awareness of and advance race equality within the setting of sensory impairment.
This conference explores how we can ensure policy, practice and service delivery, is informed by a thorough understanding of the needs of ethnic minorities experiencing sensory impairment, and guarantees equality of access.
We aim to raise awareness of issues specific to ethnic minority communities at risk of sensory loss, explore the challenges and solutions for those living with sensory loss and support services to consider practical approaches to delivery of services to their diverse communities.
