Community Development Officer update
Hello, today I would like to take a look back at my time at Zebra Access, why? Well, I will be leaving Zebra Access and this will be my last video before I leave. I just wanted to share with you some of my highlights I have had during my time here at Zebra Access. There have been los of amazing achievements, such as the collaborations between Zebra Access and other organisations such councils, health, police and many more. We’ve been able to work together to give better access to the deaf community. we have also arranged a number of events such as our coffee mornings, interactive health and council forums and more where people have been able to come together and engage. We have organised trips to the Coventry Transport Museum, Shrewsbury prison to have a look around, Wolverhampton crown court and other locations where the local community have been able to go out and enjoy themselves. I would like to say a huge thanks to my team who have been so supportive and have been amazing to work with and who will continue to engage with the community. I would also like to say thank you to our funders who have allowed us to continue our work, I want to say thanks to the National Lottery who have enabled us to continue our services and project and also to the Police who funded our amazing hate crime video project which allowed us to make a BSL video that could be shared with the community. We have also received funding for facemasks and much much more. My most important thank you goes out to you all, your involvement and support have allowed us at Zebra Access to continue our work, you are all truly important. So this is the end of an era for me at Zebra Access, that doesn’t mean that things will now stop, our staff will continue to run the project as normal and I will still continue to support Zebra Access and may meet you all in the future, whether that be through attending events such as Deaffest, coffee mornings or any other. I want to say a big thank you to you all for supporting me through my time at Zebra Access. Bye.
