IDS Coronavirus ISL Support

During this time of worldwide crisis IDS is here to support you and the Deaf community. The Coronavirus is causing disruptions to all of our lives. For some it will mean problems with employment and for others unfortunately it will mean health difficulties.

We are asking the Deaf community and our national council members to communicate with us about your concerns and needs. We want to support our community in every way we can.

We are engaging with state services but it is clear that not enough information is being provided in our language, ISL. For that reason we are adding new content to our website to support you and get you the information you need.

Visit our support  page Coronavirus ISL Support for news, ISL translations and links to resources. This section of our website will be a hub for ISL content and we are inviting other organisations to share their information with us and we will add it.

The IDS is here with you during this difficult time.

Contact our Coronavirus support team by email advocacy@irishdeafsociety.ie or text/call 086 440 1443.
