Deaf-led services

As British Sign Language users and members of the Deaf Community, our Deaf Led team know first-hand the issues faced by Deaf people and the best advice and support to give to overcome these. We provide Deaf-led advocacy, peer support and information along with monthly wellbeing walks and groups. We also provide BSL counselling.

Our Business Accessibility Services include Deaf Awareness training. Helping organisations to become more Deaf aware, our training is designed and delivered by trainers with lived experience.
