Dr Dan meets with members of the Suffolk Deaf Association in Ipswich

Dr Dan talks to members and volunteers during visit to the Suffolk Deaf Association with Cllr Robin Vickery in IpswichLast week, Dan visited the Suffolk Deaf Association in Ipswich, which provides help and support for the deaf and hard of hearing and their families in Suffolk. Dan was accompanied by County Councillor Robin Vickery as he was introduced to the dedicated volunteers and those who use the association’s services, before answering questions on a range of issues.

Many of us will never know what it feels like to be deaf or hard of hearing, but we can all support people with disabilities and help them to play a full and active a role in our communities by removing some of the prejudices that prevent them from doing so. Dan was particularly encouraged that people who develop hearing loss later in life are also given help and support by the Suffolk Deaf Association.

Like any charity, the Suffolk Deaf Association relies upon the generosity of its volunteers to provide its services to local people and Dan would like to thank them all for their continued hard work. He would also like to thank Sheila Waspe, one of the Patron’s of the association, for meeting him on Friday and he looks forward to visiting again.
