Investors in People Award

The Deafness Resource Centre has successfully achieved the standards required to retain the Investors in People status for the third time. We were first accredited in 2007 and have worked hard to maintain and develop policies and practices to support the development of our staff and volunteers, who are the organisations greatest asset.

As a Third Sector organisation I believe it’s important to achieve national accreditations as this demonstrates that our commitment to quality and good practice is equal to that of private industry and statutory agencies.

Thanks to all our staff and volunteers for their input during the assessment, we couldn’t have done this without you!

Thanks to Paul Delaney!

A big THANK YOU to Paul Delaney who has raised £156

Paul organised a Poetry Festival at St Thomas of Canterbury Primary school and donated the takings from the entry fee to the Deafness Resource Centre!

Carriers for Causes!!


Thanks to a small grant from the lovely people at Carriers for Causes (administered by Groundwork UK), we will now be able to replace the broken chairs in our Hall!! 

 Katy Sheridan, Finance and Resources Manager said:

“We were delighted to get this funding, as it means we can continue to provide quality room hire in our Centre for the various different groups.  Our project “Chairs for Change” is being funded by the 5p carrier bag charge from OneStop stores in our local area, so if you have bought a 5p bag recently…thanks to you too!”

 

 

Tinnitus Awareness Week

2017’s Tinnitus Awareness Week is taking place from 6-12 February.

The theme this year is “Together for Tinnitus.”

The campaign ‘Together for Tinnitus’ is intended to generate discussion about tinnitus and raise awareness of the work being carried out, and the support provided by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) and other services like us across the UK.

The British Tinnitus Association will be raising awareness amongst GPs about the condition and the treatment options available, so that they feel confident to support patients who are experiencing this often distressing and debilitating condition. During the week, the BTA are launching their official ‘Tinnitus Guidance for GPs’ document which will provide the most up-to-date information on how people suffering with tinnitus can best be helped from diagnosis through to self-help management of the condition.

Please visit https://www.tinnitus.org.uk/taw2017 for more information and how you can help.
