We have recently been meeting with the ladies at Chrysalis Centre for Change in St Helens. Chrysalis Centre for Change has a great track record in offering fantastic counselling services and courses to support women with mental health issues, stress, depression and anxiety, and domestic abuse.
They want to ensure that every woman can benefit from their service and that everyone feels welcome, so were keen to learn some basic conversational British Sign Language and that’s where we came in. They have been the best students, they are eager to learn and passionate about making their service as welcoming for the Deaf community as possible.
Chrysalis Centre for Change is a registered charity and so relies on funding. Accessing funding is more likely to be successful with support from the community that the service supports. There is a shortage of services that offer support for the Deaf community. Please support this service.
