Deafblind Awareness Week 2022 will run from Monday 20 June until Sunday 26 June and will feature a host of exciting and fun events for our members to enjoy! The theme this year is celebrating Deafblind People’s Right to Dream.
Members the week before Deafblind Awareness Week will receive a Happy DBAW card detailing all activities throughout the week, along with tasters of what is to come!
We have a fun packed week for our members to be part of, beginning with a storytelling session to care home residents in the local area with Anne Dignan, who is deafblind and winner of the Tall Tales Oscar prize.
At the start of the week events for members include our Kindness Café, Quiz and wearing red and white on our walk led by our Senior Development Leader, Julie. Other events later in the week include tea with our CEO, Isabella at our charity shop. On Friday 24 June we will host our AGM/Strategy Launch Event featuring musical entertainment. We will display Deafblind Scotland member Andrew’s short film ‘Milkshakes & Disability: A Helpful Guide’ in conjunction with Solar Bear and draw our Poetry competition for members with fantastic prizes.
There’s lots for members to enjoy and get involved in, so make sure to follow us on social media @dbscotland and help celebrate Deafblind Awareness Week 2022. Please share the hashtag #DBAW2022 to show your support and get involved!
