The core focus of the Sensory Engagement Digital Training toolkit is to raise awareness among service providers of what it is like to be blind, partially sighted, deaf or hard of hearing and using every day services, with a particular focus on accessing libraries, colleges and banks.

The key aims:

  • Offer practical, easy to remember ways for staff to make their services more inclusive.
  • Increase awareness of the practical and emotional impact of having a sensory loss.
  • Encourage you to start to identify how you can improve your service provision for someone with sensory loss.
