This Friday October 15, our chief executive Jackie Ballard will be answering your questions on RNID’s rebrand. From next June we will be changing our name to Action On Hearing Loss, a move designed to raise the profile of the organisation and put it in a better position to help more people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
We know lots of you have questions on such a massive change - and we’re giving you the opportunity this Friday. Many may already be familiar with Jackie’s hugely popular live Twitter Q&As, but this time we will be doing it a little differently.
All this week, we will be asking people to send in their questions either via our Facebook and Twitter pages or by email. Jackie will be answering as many of the questions as possible from 1-2pm on Friday live to camera, with a BSL interpreter sat next to her signing the questions and answers. The clip will then be posted up on our YouTube channel that same afternoon. We will also put the link up on Facebook, Twitter and our website. The transcript will also be available on all social media networks – and later on we will be putting a subtitled version up on YouTube.
So please start sending in your questions via Twitter, using the hashtag #rnidchat, or posting them on our Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope as many of you will be joining in as possible.
