AFC Bournemouth are looking to recruit Match Day Support Services Assistants with a BSL Level 2 qualification (or equivalent) to help improve the match day experience for their d/Deaf and hard of hearing football fans.
WDDA is keen to support this initiative and are working closely with AFC Bournemouth to help make the club more inclusive. On 15th September 2019 WDDA trustees George Raggett and Keith Simmons, along with a small group of football fans from the local d/Deaf and hard of hearing community, were invited to attend the Vitality Stadium to watch the AFC Bournemouth vs Everton match and given the opportunity to provide feedback on the overall experience of accessibility for Deaf people with diverse communication needs. We are also looking to offer BSL and communication tactics training with an aim of equipping their match day team with simple tips and the confidence to maximise the success of their first encounter with a deaf or deafblind person.
