Training is primarily for health and social care staff and volunteers working with people who have sight or hearing loss, dementia or learning difficulties. It will provide the knowledge and skills to deliver fully inclusive services. Trainees will gain an understanding and knowledge of a range of health, eye and ear conditions, and practical experience in guiding, communication and providing accessible information.
