I would like to send a special thank you to my team, including a staff member who has now moved on. Working in deaf services meant that we had to make extra adjustments during Covid19 restrictions to ensure that our service users were supported face to face. While technology has been fantastic, at times it did not work, so we made efforts to see people more regularly and at their homes or in an outside space. It has not been easy for deaf people due to masks and reduced social contacts that were already limited.
