About the Session

Video Transcript

Hello to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community!

Ever wanted to get a speech-to-text interpreter (notetaker) or sign language interpreter for an event or class, but felt unsure on how to explain to the organisers? Or perhaps you feel frustrated that you have to keep paying for notetakers and interpreters out of your own pocket.

Equal Dreams is organising an information session for the Deaf/HoH community to address these two common issues.

In this session, you will learn the following. First, how to request for access services from your organiser, and explain the purpose of access services. Second, how to apply for funding to cover access services if you have to pay for them yourself. Two funds you can use are the Equal Dreams x Mediacorp Enable Fund, and the Temasek Trust-CDC Lifelong Learning Enabling Fund.

There will also be a short survey done at the end to help us better understand barriers the community faces when applying for access services.

If you would like to register, head to the link below.

Hope to see you there!
