How to book an appointment:

Please note we cannot offer a 24/7 service. If you are in crisis or immediate danger, please contact the Police using 999 BSL https://999bsl.co.uk/download/
If you are a Greater Manchester-based service, we can offer you a FREE deaf awareness training session. We have a 2-hour session which aims to raise awareness of the barriers faced by D/deaf people and how your service can become more welcoming and accessible to D/deaf people. The session has been created specifically for the DASA project and will be delivered by Michelle.
We also provide introductory knowledge and skills to help you communicate with D/deaf people and information about the cultural and social needs of D/deaf people and their families.
This session can be provided at Manchester Deaf Centre, or we can come to your organisation.
If you would like to book a session, please contact us using the details below.
