Communication services for Deaf People
LANGUAGE SUPPORT PROFESSIONALS
Why would a Language Support Professional be needed?
The Equality and Human Rights Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against a disabled person for reasons of their disability. This means all public services must make reasonable adjustment to allow disabled people to use their services.
In the case of deaf or hard of hearing people unless you already have in-house facilities for language support you will need to give some thought as to how your organisation can fulfill its obligations to the thousands of people in Wales who are deaf or hard of hearing.
At Wales Council for Deaf People you will receive a professional and efficient service to help facilitate communication between public service personnel and Deaf/hard of hearing people.
Whatever your clients’ needs, we can provide language support professionals to work with you to deliver a package that is tailor-made to suit your needs.
