We are pleased to announce that having received an Awards for All Grant from the Big Lottery fund, iBSL are now looking to create revised qualifications around Deafblind Awareness. Part of this funding was recently used to provide a pilot course Deafblind Awareness Level 1 in Ireland, free of charge to the participants. This was the first time the course, which had already been available throughout the UK and Northern Ireland, had been offered in Ireland.
Below are some pictures and testimonials below from the fantastic event.
‘Course instructors having dual sensory loss so able to give personal experience of deafblind’
‘very informative and practical information’
‘very thought inspiring’
‘the course has made me reflect on my own work practice’
