Use your BSL skills on a Sense Holiday!


Recommended Posts

Sense Holidays Volunteer

Do you have experience of supporting people with complex needs? Are you a skilled communicator, able to communicate with people who have multi-sensory impairments?

If so, volunteering on a Sense Holiday will be a rewarding experience that enables you to use these incredible skills to provide support to people with complex disabilities to communicate and experience the world. Volunteering on a Sense Holiday is a truly unique experience, giving you the opportunity to connect with people, learn new skills and make special memories.  

We bring people together for holidays full of fun, friendship and new experiences. You will be key to this; providing hands on support for people on the holiday – from supporting people to participate in group activities, supporting the building of friendships to providing support with personal care. Having a welcoming, clean and safe environment on our holidays is important, so you will also support with cooking meals for the group and general cleaning.

We are looking for volunteers who have considerable experience supporting people with complex needs and those who can communicate using British Sign Language. Please note that our Sense Holiday volunteer opportunities are available to applicants aged 18 and over. Our holidays are fun and provide the opportunity for new experiences and adventures – our volunteers need to be enthusiastic, positive, friendly, resilient and ready to have fun!

    • Hi I am interested if you don’t mind 
    • Hi I am learning BSL for my work as a health care assistant I am doing BSL level 1 I really enjoy learning I wear hearing aids so hard of hearing 
    • Hi - new learner ( later in life perhaps - I’m 50+ ) have done about 3 months BSL with an awesome teacher and am looking for practice buddies - i find the dexterity and speed of fluent speakers amazing - I’m really really slow 😂 - the key I’m told is practice practice and more practice - I’d love to have a video chat buddy to practice with. Please drop me a line if interested. I’m a company owner in the technology / social value / climate sector. 
    • Hey, I work as an Early years practitioner for the NHS where we use Makaton within our setting. Although I am enjoying learning and using Makaton I decided I wanted to try learning BSL. Although I am only about to start lesson 5, so far so good with the BSL, in fact I love it! and now we have a child who has a hearing difficulty. I am hard on myself ensuring I am very sure of the signs I have learnt before using them at work. I often recap previous lessons to confirm my retainment and set myself (what I call) a remember challenge for words that are challenging for me to memorise which I have found useful. I am already finding that I can read some language signed on television and feel very excited / proud. This leaves me thinking, within inclusion, why is BSL not on the curriculum for children to learn at school?        
    • Great this is very appreciable. I personally believe learning anything new in life is our achievement, so whether we use this language or not, we should give a try learning BSL.   _____________________________________ Anthony Constantinou
    • A friend of mine is a Clairvoyant and she had this person appear when she was with clients.  He seems to be using a form of sign language, but I have no idea what it is. Can anyone clarify what the hands are saying? Your help is greatly appreciated. Penelope  
    • Okay cool!  Discord is like an app that is really good for "group chats". You can use it on a computer too. I will message you the invite link to the server (think of a server like a group chat) I have made. It will guide you to make a discord account and then join you into the server! Slow is okay
    • Hi,  group chat good idea.  What is discord?    I am fully hearing but always had an interest in BSL and final got round to beginning to learn.  Bit slow going as have to fit it in around work & home life.
