DAISY

The project will pilot a training and face to face information service for people with severe hearing impairments by making use of digital technology. This pilot aims to link service users of all ages with a BSL interpreter and the community link person based within Medrwn Mn to access low level services from third sector bodies which will aid them to live more independent lives: 
 
The pilot will focus on:- 
  • Training staff to train service users in using mobile phones and tablets to communicate with interpreters (free service for the service user) 
  • Raising awareness and training will be accessible via existing North Wales Deaf Association forums 
  • Equipment will not need to be purchased as Medrwn Mn and Menter Mn between them have a stock of tablets and I-Pads which can be used for this purpose 
  • A training video will also be produced that can also be available on you tube 
  • The service will be available for two days a week 10.00 am 3.00pm from the Llangefni Town Hall 
  • The pilot will run for 6 months whilst applications are made for grant funding to continue with and develop the pilot further 
  • The pilot will also give attention to sign post the service users on to further training opportunities thereby improving their employability
