Sight and dual sensory loss training for Delivery Partners (Session 1)Location: Sense Family Centre, Woodside, Kingswood Foundation Estate, Britannia Road, Bristol, BS15 8DB
Time: 10am - 1pm
We want all of our delivery partners to feel confident in reaching and including everyone within the community. To support you with this, we will be offering training on sight and dual sensory loss, hearing loss and substance misuse – three of the groups identified by BAB as being particularly at risk of loneliness and isolation.
Course details and descriptions can be found below. Please note, each session will run twice – you do not need to attend both dates.
If you would like to book onto a training session, please email email@example.com. Places will be booked on a first come, first served basis. Please note that this training is only available for staff and volunteers working on BAB funded projects.
Please also let us know if you have any accessibility requirements.
