The Ministry of Tourism, in collaboration with the Barbados Council for the Disabled, will host a Sensitivity Awareness and Sign Language Workshop entitled Fully Accessible Barbados (FAB) from Thursday, September 27, until Friday, September 28.

The two-day workshop will be held at Divi Southwinds Beach Resort, St. Lawrence Main Road, Christ Church, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

In addition to training and sensitising workers in the Tourism industry on how to meet the needs of guests with disabilities, the workshop is designed to educate persons in basic sign language skills that would encourage effective communication with the hearing impaired.
