Assessment & Staff Training
Assessment and Training
The Disability Discrimination Act of 2006 states that Landlords have a responsibility to carry out adaptations for people with disabilities to enable them to live safely and independently in the homes.
We are able to carry out an Assessment Service for housing authorities, housing societies, housing partnership’s, etc where the needs of people with a hearing disability are individually identified and met with the provision and/or installation of relevant equipment. A written assessment will be provided. The introduction of the recommended equipment will enable tenants to live safely and independently – the equipment recommended is wide ranging covering smoke alerts, carbon monoxide alerts, door, telephone and baby alerts. As a landlord you can be confident you are meeting the requirements of the 2006 Disability Discrimination Act.
Installation and Repair Service
Deaf Awareness Technology can provide a supply and installation service for housing authorities, housing societies, housing partnerships in the Hampshire, Dorset area. Once an order has been received this is delivered by contacting the tenant to notify them we have been asked to supply and install the equipment, arranging the date for the installation to take place (normally within 1-4 weeks) , installing the equipment and demonstrating to the tenant how it works. Once the job is complete the work is invoiced. Repairs to existing equipment already installed or emergency calls are also a service we can offer with a call out charge being advised.
