Workshop for volunteers

Volunteers help at Deafblind Victoria every week, while learning about Deafblind culture and practising Auslan. This can be a pathway to future work as an interpreter or commguide, and also to friendships and social connection with the Deafblind community. We really value our volunteers!

On 1st April 2023, Deafblind Victoria ran volunteer training from DBV. 9 volunteers and 4  Deafblind presenters attended.

Volunteers had an opportunity to develop skills to help them support Deafblind people. Volunteers learned about the correct way of guiding, Deafblind communications and listened to Heather, Alex, Jasper and Rodney’s life experiences with Deafblindness.

Thank you to all who attended!
