RHYL businesses supporting deaf friendly practices are invited to shine in a charity awards scheme.

Action on Hearing Loss Cymru Excellence Wales are looking for those who have created workspaces and services to support deaf people in Wales.

Daisy Cole, director for Wales at Action on Hearing Loss, said: "The awards are a key event in the charity’s calendar and we always enjoy reading through the nominations we receive detailing the work of some of Wales’ most outstanding organisations.

"The changes they make to their workplaces and customer facing environments to make sure their services are accessible to the 20 percent of the Welsh public that are deaf or hard of hearing are amazing to see.

"Since launching the honours five years ago, we have presented Excellence Awards to over 20 Welsh companies from across Wales and we can’t wait to see what this year’s competition holds."

There are eight award categories and prizes will be presented at St David’s Hotel, Cardiff, on May 17. Nominations open until March 17 and can be made on 02920 333034 or by visiting the website.
