2015/16 Scholarship Award

The 2015/16 Scholarship Award was presented to Linda Dean in July 2015 ready for her to undertake a Level 3 in hairdressing.

Last year Linda passed Hairdressing level 2. She wanted to carry on with Level 3 but the course was too expensive and there were funding cuts for deaf people in education. She is a single mother and couldn't afford to fund herself. She was awarded a grant through our Scholarship programme. Without the scholarship she wouldn't have been able to complete the course.

"Total Communication's Scholarship scheme / grant has helped me lots and I hope to achieve my level 3 qualification. It will also be a great help to deaf people who can't communicate with a hearing hairdresser. I hope to work with the deaf community as a mobile hairdresser." - Linda
