We are offering free Deaf Awareness training to groups and organisations across Dumfries and Galloway.

The Scottish Government’s See Hear Strategy recommends that more organisations undertake sensory impairment training.

With our aging population, hearing loss is going to affect more of our community. By undertaking the training we hope that people with hearing loss are better supported across Dumfries and Galloway.


Deaf Awareness Training dates:

  • Castle Douglas Fire Station: Tuesday 26th September.
  • Stranraer Fire Station: Wednesday 4th October
  • Dumfries Fire Station: Tuesday 7th November & Wednesday 22nd November.

All courses are approximately 2 hours long and run from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on each date. For more information, or to book a place, please contact us on 07944698453 or email: infodghhg@gmail.com


*If you have a larger group of people in need of training and these dates are unsuitable, please let us know and we can arrange a visit/additional session.
