My name is Ruthy Fletcher and I was born profoundly deaf.
I made a decision to teach Deaf Awareness training, to hoteliers, due to an experience that I had previously encountered. I was staying in a hotel when unbeknown to me the fire alarm went off. I was not alerted to the fire and was the only person left in the building, unaware of what was happening. After discussing this with deaf friends, I was astounded as to how many of them had similar experiences. I have unfortunately experienced this 3 times in different hotels around the UK.
Driven by a desire to improve deaf awareness in the workplace, I decided to change my career and launch my own business
“Support The Deaf”.
I am a fully qualified Signature Deaf Awareness Tutor holding 4 relevant qualifications as follows :
§ Signature Deaf Awareness (formerly CACDP Deaf Awareness) City College Manchester
