Deaf Community Engagement Event

North East Derbyshire District Council is proud to announce that it is holding an engagement event for deaf residents of the district on 8 July, 12:30 - 3:00 pm at Dronfield Sports Centre.

The event will provide an opportunity for deaf residents to come together at Dronfield Sports Centre to engage with us, ask questions, view our facility and meet fellow residents.

The event will showcase leisure services with staff presenting information on what they provide and how to get involved. There will also be an opportunity to take a tour of the leisure centre as well as asking the staff any questions.

The council will be highlighting the positive steps they have taken since signing the charter to assist deaf residents and there will also be representatives from Sign Solutions demonstrating the video relay service that the Council has in its leisure centres and council offices in Wingerworth that  enables deaf customers to contact us via a British Sign Language interpreter.

The event will be held on 8th July 2022 from 12:30 -3:00 pm at Dronfield Sports Centre, Civic Centre, Dronfield S18 1PD. A light buffet will be available between 12:30 and 1:00pm. A BSL signer will be in attendance.
