Almost 11 million people in the UK have hearing difficulties or is Deaf – and having feedback from our local Deaf community has helped us select a new British Sign Language provider from 1 June 2016.
Associate Director of Engagement & Inclusion Ruth Mason, pictured with Cassandra Topp, Managing Director at Topp Language Solutions (TLS) told CHFT Weekly: “I was pleased we had more than 40 Deaf people attend an event to talk to us about their experiences. Their feedback really helped us work out the selection criteria we needed for our new service.
“I’m delighted we’re going to be working with TLS.” Cassandra has personal experience of the Deaf community, so is in a fantastic position to offer an empathetic service to CHFT.
“We have worked closely together to create a specially designed portal into our own CHFT booking site which is safe, easy to use and tailored to our needs”.
TLS are thrilled to provide a BSL Interpreting Service to the local Deaf Community. Our aim is ensure that the Deaf Community are getting the proper access to the services they are entitled to by providing them with a high quality interpreting service. We feel by taking on this service we can provide the Deaf Community with just this.
