Police Station Visit - Copy

Police Station Visit

On the 1st of August dDeaf residents were invited to the new Police Station to discuss a way forward to improve how the emergency contact arrangements could be improved for dDeaf people.  The group included people of all ages, from children to adults and included cochlear implant users, hearing aid users and as well as those with a dual sensory loss. Several ideas were discussed and the evening was very informative for both the parties, with everyone learning a lot more about each others needs and requirements.  After a presentation the group were treated to a guided tour of the new Police Station which was very interesting and gave those attending a much better idea of how the Station works and the up to date facilities it has.  Many thanks goes to the Community Policing Team for their hospitality and support.

BSL Access to Politics 

For the first time in Jersey, Politics is accessible to our dDeaf community. The Senator Hustings on the 14th May 2018 had a BSL Interpreter, who was part funded by the States of Jersey and the Jersey dDeaf Society.  The Interpreter came from the U.K. and provided British Sign Language interpretation of the questions and discussions throughout the meeting.  

This was a big step forward for the dDeaf community and it is hoped in the future more public meetings will be accessible to our community.
