Guide to Northern Ireland Charities

We are publishing a Guide to Northern Ireland Charities.The feature will hopefully allow some of the lesser known charities to inform our readers about the services they offer, who to contact for assistance and what makes their charity different from all the others.

The feature will be in the  main magazine and we are offering a full page  @ £300 (Normal rate card would be £1500)

This will be made up by a half page advertisement and a half page editorial. I am hoping you will decide to get involved.

Ulster Tatler is the only monthly glossy magazine in Northern Ireland that’s registered with the Audited Bureau of Circulations readership 256,000 and it will offer you the ideal platform within which to promote your plans for 2019.

Deaf woman applies for 1,000 jobs in 18 months – and is rejected from them ALL

A deaf woman has applied for 1,000 jobs in 18 months – and not landed a single one.

Kellie Wilson, from Middleton Tyas, North Yorkshire, believes she is being snubbed by would-be employers because of her disability.

Every job application she has made since the summer of 2017 has resulted in a series of rejections.

Now, she is so desperate that she is contemplating cochlear implants knowing that they may not even work.

Irish Sign Language Tours 2019

Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran T.D., Minister of State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Flood Relief has announced that the OPW will offer an extended programme of Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpreted tours at OPW heritage sites in 2019. This follows on from similar, very successful programmes in previous years and extends the number of sites where these services are available. This year will see the extension of the programme to include sites outside Dublin such as the Rock of Cashel and Charles Fort in Kinsale for the first time.

Announcing the programme, the Minister said, “I am delighted to extend this invitation to members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. The OPW is entrusted with looking after wonderful heritage sites which I feel passionately that everyone should be able to enjoy. I am pleased that this initiative will greatly improve access to these sites for members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community.”
