Barry said: “I’m really excited to have been successful with my bid and looking forward to working with youth groups to deliver the sessions.

“I’ve delivered Deaf Awareness sessions to a Scouts group before and I really enjoyed it and the feedback was great.

“These sessions will help to educate young people to interact and communicate with Deaf people and to break down barriers.
