deafscotland received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for this virtual museum. The Project Worker worked with deafscotland members and volunteers from across Scotland to gather exhibits to be shared. The museum project is as much as possible bilingual in British Sign Language and English.
The Virtual Museum has three aims
1. Provide meaningful, useful information across culture, heritage and health/well-being in a fully accessible way.
2. Provide confidence and capacity building across the four pillars of deafness through volunteering activities.
3. Provide a link to digital/technology development and pathways to more mainstream volunteering opportunities in culture, heritage and health settings for volunteers.
These other trusts and organisations were also involved in the project:
