Action on Hearing Loss Survey

📰 Support and advice needed for people with hearing loss or deafness in work.

Five million people of working age are deaf or have hearing loss or tinnitus, but we know very little about the support people are getting – or not getting – to help them in work, and the impact that this has. Action on Hearing Loss are carrying out a survey seeking the views of people who have mild to profound hearing loss and/or tinnitus and are currently in employment.

The survey responses will help inform a Working for Change report to be published by Action on Hearing Loss in early 2020.

To find out more, we are asking people who are currently in work to complete this survey.

Transition Joint Working with ECS Fairview School Wins Award

📰 Silver Award for Transition Joint Working with ECS Fairview School

Work experience for school pupils is extremely valuable to give them a sense of what it’s like to do a job in a real life setting. They can learn many important skills such as timekeeping, health & safety, customer services, and team working, etc., as well as getting an idea of what sort of job they may like to do when they leave school or indeed what they may not want to do!
Transition from school to further education or employment can be challenging for any pupil, but it can be even more so when you face additional challenges such as illness or disability. Often, opportunities in a supported employment setting can be very hard to come across and many young people are missing out.
The Employment Support Team are keen to help address this and were delighted to help Fairview School give Josh and Callum a work experience as recycling operatives on the Green2Go project.
