Doncaster Deaf Trust Children’s Home(s) strongly believes Deaf people should have access to equipment and provisions which enable them to access a wide range of facilities and live as independently as possible.
The Home has a range of tools to help make this possible, including:
- Flashing fire alarms in every bedroom
- Staff who communicate using British Sign Language
- Trained interpreters
- On site audiologist
- Vibrating alarm clocks
- Computer access
- Subtitles on all forms of TV media
Using these provisions, individuals are encouraged to develop their independence, while having the added security of trained staff on hand to support them.
