Sensory impaired volunteers celebrated
Essex Sensory Service, run by Essex Cares Limited (ECL), commended its committed group of volunteers who help raise awareness of the issues sight impaired, hearing impaired and Deafblind (dual sensory impaired) people face when accessing services and local communities.
ECL’s volunteers carry out Secret Shopper visits and assist with the delivery of Sensory Awareness Training.
As well as highlighting good communication and customer service in services such as Essex Police and the NHS.
Keir Lynch CEO of ECL and Councillor Jill Reeves presented the volunteers with certificates and cards thanking them for their commitment and energy in helping ECL break down the many barriers facing the thousands of sensory impaired people in Essex.
Councillor Jill Reeves
All of your volunteers work so hard and put so much effort into everything. It was a pleasure to meet and talk with them [volunteers]. Having said that, it must not be forgotten that everyone at ECL works tirelessly all year round. The enthusiasm exuded! You all deserve a pat on the back. Proud to be a part of it.
