Deaf and blind charity in Yorkshire to lose £100m funding

Posted Aug 25 2011 12:33pm

The deaf and blind charity, coHearentVision , is looking to the future after funding cuts by Leeds City Council, which has awarded contracts for the delivery of support services to a Birmingham-based contractor and a national charity.

The council’s decision has prompted coHearentVision to implement cost-cutting measures including staff redundancies and downsizing from its landmark offices at Centenary House in Leeds.

The deaf and blind charity, coHearentVision , is looking to the future after funding cuts by Leeds City Council, which has awarded contracts for the delivery of support services to a Birmingham-based contractor and a national charity.

The council’s decision has prompted coHearentVision to implement cost-cutting measures including staff redundancies and downsizing from its landmark offices at Centenary House in Leeds.

With 135 years of experience, the charity is determined to focus on a regeneration strategy to continue to support people with sensory impairments.

Rob Young, Chief Executive of coHearentVision: “Future operations will focus on community-based delivery centered around the continued provision of British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreting, cutting edge Sensory Awareness Training to businesses and organizations, BSL Training, Braille Large Print and Audio production as well as youth services for sensory impaired and learning-challenged children.”
More than 2000 charities and funding groups have been affected with government cuts, forcing them to think of other ways to save and generate funds and very few are as optimistic as coHearentVision.
