It's estimated that there are around 11 million D/deaf people in the UK, a significant amount of whose primary source of communication is British Sign Language. That's a lot of customers that may not be getting your message.
We are passionate about improving access for the Deaf community to information that hearing people take for granted.
It's a popular misconception that all Deaf people can read English. But in actual fact, many Deaf people either cannot read English or do not fully understand written text. That is because for many Deaf people English is a second language.
We're here to break down barriers and connect communities.
Have you ever felt like a fish out of water?
Imagine feeling so disconnected with the world all of the time. This is life for some in the Deaf community.
Barriers to communication for the Deaf community can lead to social isolation and both mental and physical ill health.
It is estimated that as many as two out of three Deaf people struggle with mental health problems (Royal College of Psychiatrists). In addition to this the Deaf community constantly experience difficulties in accessing services, information and advice around health & wellbeing.
Think, when was the last time you sat in your GP surgery or hospital and saw any information displayed in BSL? This feeling of isolation can be reduced and information and advice can be more readily available in BSL via video using a QR code.
What do we do, and how does it work?
You've got a great business or service, but why aren't you sharing it with everyone?

So, you’ve advertised your service/business to the Deaf community, but what now? What if someone contacts you who is Deaf?
We offer conversational sign language lessons tailored specifically to your service/business needs. We can teach you and your staff some basic sign language to allow you to make that first contact and crucially, to show people who are Deaf that your service/business values them too.
