Hear and Now has a team of experienced speakers available to give talks on the work of the Talking Newspaper to local organisations, clubs and schools. We do not charge a fee for this but invite a donation to the Talking Newspaper.
We also have a team of specially trained visitors who will go to the listener’s home and demonstrate the player and show them how the simple system works ensuring that they fully understand. For listeners who have carers or need further assistance we will also include the carer in the demonstration.
All visitors are DBS cleared (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly known as the CRB check) which ensures that anyone coming in contact with vulnerable people holds a current certificate of clearance. Hear and Now’s Safety Officer manages this area of our operation.
