Staff from Manchester Housing Association star in National Brochure

April 22, 2012 by  

A group of employees from a housing association in Manchester has been selected to be featured in a brochure that will be distributed throughout the country after being produced by brochure printers.

Manchester-based Great Places, a housing association, recently announced that members of its staff are to be featured in a new nationally-available brochure for training courses run by HearFirst. HearFirst is an organisation that offers courses in equality and diversity training, with a particular focus on raising awareness of the challenges faced by people with hearing disabilities in the workplace.

HearFirst and Great Places have worked together over the past two years, running awareness courses that equip staff with the skills to communicate with and provide the same level of service to people, whatever their level of ability or disability. The new brochure was created by HearFirst in conjunction with staff at Great Places. The director of HearFirst is Julie Ryder and she recently commented on the new brochure, saying:

“During a recent training course, we invited the staff to help us put our new corporate brochure together and ‘be the faces’ of our publication. I am very grateful that they agreed to participate and gave us their permission to photograph them – they are all stars!”

By creating a full colour printed brochure advertising training courses, HearFirst will be able to achieve a wide reach in terms of the people they are targeting to book courses throughout the country. The photography of real people taking part in the course is also sure to appeal to a number of companies.
