This is a newly created post within Forth Valley, which has been developed in response to the long standing need for us to extend the reach of our services to ensure we are a genuine Forth Valley wide service, expanding our provision for people who are deaf or have hearing loss who have not recently or previously engaged with our services.

Through provision of information sessions to community groups, employers and service providers, the Deaf Advocate will identify people with hearing loss who have previously had no or limited knowledge or contact with sensory services, build relationships with them and identify further ways that we can provide the support they need.

For example, FVSC currently deliver an outreach social group for blind people in Stirling, one of the key objectives of this post will be to examine the feasibility of creating more outreach social group provision for Deaf people and those with Hearing Loss in Clackmannanshire and Stirling areas.

In addition to extensive networking, the Deaf Advocate will be responsible for administration and reporting to line manager and other Team members as required. Reports are likely to include gathering feedback from participants, including testimonials, keeping a record of the number and location of activities carried out by the Advocate, and number of people engaged with and the outcomes that happen as a result of our activities.
