British Sign Language

If you need to communicate with deaf people, we have BSL interpreters available for meetings and consultations.

British sign language is a language in its own right and as with verbal interpreting, our interpreters abide by a strict code of ethics, covering impartiality, accuracy and confidentiality.

The BSL interpreters we work with have passed their NVQ level 6 and will be registered with the NRCPD (National Registers for Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People). BSL interpreters are DBS checked. For sign language bookings, we ask for as much notice as possible. We often cover short-notice appointments, but these cannot be guaranteed due to the availability of qualified BSL interpreters.
