My name is Mona Vyas and I work for Sign Loop Interpreting Services. Part of my role within this organisation is to support newly qualified British Sign Language interpreters within our Support Network scheme. Basically this is to allow these interpreters to meet a variety of Deaf people on a weekly basis, encouraging them to improve their already acquired skills and confidence.
Our services have recently set up a new Deaf Access Centre at Wolverhampton Science Park that aims to provide improved access for Deaf people. Our interpreters within the above mentioned scheme are available to make telephone calls and translate important letters, for e.g., bills, benefits information or hospital appointment bookings. A Deaf person may be challenged when faced with any of these because their first language is often British Sign Language and not English. Communication barriers can be extremely frustrating for Deaf people and so our interpreters aim to break down these barriers and ensure a much smoother experience for our clients.
I would be delighted if you could display the attached poster in your organisation to raise awareness of the centre and encourage Deaf people to attend here in Wolverhampton, West Midlands. At Wolverhampton Science Park. Wolverhampton. WV10 9RU on Monday from 10.30am t0 2.30pm. Please call 0121 601 0033 or text 07557336319.
