Engaging deaf and disabled young people with heritage

Engaging deaf and disabled young people with heritage

History of Place Toolkit, 2018

"Over the last three years, the History of Place programme has been widely praised for our collaborative and accessible delivery techniques. As the programme is coming to an end, we feel that it is important to share our learning in the form of a simple ‘how to’ guide for other organisations wanting to engage deaf and disabled young people.

By collaborating with a diverse range of people, you can create opportunities which are richer and more accessible for individuals, allowing them to interact with your work in a more meaningful way. This is something we feel can be achieved through implementing our tips and recommendations when planning and delivering your activities.

Whilst this toolkit has been developed with a museum and heritage audience in mind, we are hopeful that these recommendations can be used across many different contexts."
