FACS acknowledges we all come from different perspectives and specialisms and we should value and celebrate our expert knowledge by working together in a collaborative and integrated approach.
With the aim being to enhance our skills for the benefit of the people we work with and improve and provide an appropriate and needs led service.
FACS is looking for exciting opportunities to work with organisations and individuals to share skills, experience and knowledge and help explore possibilities and create opportunities, emphasising the need to promote health and well-being for deafblind people and those with additional disabilities.
- A National Housing Association recently asked FACS to deliver a Workshop on Diversity. This led to identifying greater training needs across the organisation to help staff to identify the needs of people with dual sensory loss and provide to accessible information, improve communication and create better environments.
- An Accessibility Consultant working on a Disability Access Audit for a Health Trust asked FACS for specialist knowledge and expertise about sensory loss and effects of noise levels and poor acoustics to anticipate environmental adjustments and create best communicative environments in hospital settings.
