Self management programmes
Programmes in 2017: Belfast, 27 April, 25 May, 22 June, supported by Big Lottery and Belfast Cathedral Sit Out To enrol, please get in touch.
Our friendly and informal programmes contain a range of useful strategies and techniques to enable people living with hearing loss to feel independent and more self confident. They are run by experienced facilitators who themselves live with a hearing loss.
About the programmes
The programme is suitable for people with any degree of hearing loss, who would like to manage better on a day to day basis. People are encouraged to share their own experiences and coping strategies and to learn from others in the group. We cover topics such as:
- personal safety
Communication support may include hearing loops, flip charts, digital notepads, and a note taker or ‘Speech to Text’ reporter who will transcribe what is said as it is being said so you can read it on a large screen.
- The programmes consist of either: three sessions in total, each taking place between 10am and 3pm. Or, residential over a weekend.
- They are free of charge for individuals and their family and friends to attend, including accommodation and meals.
- You just have to pay for travel costs to and from the venue.
We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you!
