An open day for people who have a hearing or hearing/visual impairment will be held on Tuesday, May 3.
The event has been organised as part of Deaf Awareness Week (May 2 to May 8) at Bolton’s Sensory Centre.
The Sensory Centre, at Brinks Place, Chorley Street, will be open to the public from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
There will be free advice on equipment, lip reading classes, benefit entitlement, signed language interpreters and much more.
The open day will also give people the chance to find out what facilities are on offer at the Sensory Centre.
This year Deaf Awareness Week invites people to “Look at Me”, with the aim of improving people’s understanding of the different types of deafness by highlighting the methods of communication used by deaf, deafened, deaf/blind and hard of hearing people.
Deaf Awareness Week is coordinated by the UK Council on Deafness. For more information visit their website.
