Description:
This annual report describes some of these achievements in 1998, ranging from greater choice and efficiency in hearing services to joint projects with other Government departments and agencies. While NRB personnel made a huge contribution to task groups and working parties hammering out the details of the proposed new arrangements services and standards in the organisation were not just maintained but surpassed. Some 25% more people with disabilities used the occupational guidance service in 1998 than in the previous year. Telephone queries to the National Disability Resource Centre rose by a similar proportion, those relating to access to the built environment were up by 16% and Library enquiries rose by 21%. Some 20% more hearing aids were fitted in 1998 than in 1997. NRB has certainly not been standing still.
