Royal Association for the Deaf report (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 17 June 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please can I see any emails to or from the Health Minister or Chief Minister concerning the report from the RAD (Royal Association for the Deaf) on the deaf community in Jersey and their services and needs required which would have been sent in March or April?
Please can I know when the report will be made public or available to the deaf community?
If restricted to the Deaf Partnership Board, please can I know when it will be made available to them?
The RAD contract with the Government ended at the end of April. Has it been renewed, and if so, how long for?
The information requested is attached below. Redactions have been made in order to protect the privacy of individuals. Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
The Royal Association for the Deaf (RAD) have received feedback on the latest draft of the report and Health and Community Services are awaiting the revised version.
The revised version will be presented to the Health Minister for consideration and direction on next steps.
Should the direction be to release the document to the public, this will then become available to the dDeaf Partnership Board and other interested parties.
Once the RAD report is finalised, the recommendations will be taken into consideration, and next steps will be designed and taken forward in participation with representatives from the dDeaf community.
