Consultation – Closed.
The purpose of this consultation is to ensure that people who rely on Communication Support Services have opportunities to influence the development of the service regionally and express their views on a regional service model which offers a balance of face to face interpreting and, where appropriate, non face to face interpreting.
During the consultation period, the HSCB is seeking the views of people who are deaf or hard of hearing, their families, carers, staff, voluntary organisations and the general public. In addition to this a series of meetings, designed to engage directly with members of the deaf and hard of hearing community, has been organised and facilitated by BDA Northern Ireland. Details of the times and locations of these meetings can be accessed at the link below.
