Our Online Communications Service gives you the freedom to communicate with our BSL interpreters where ever you choose.
Our generic advocacy service works with Deaf people and their families living in the North West area and requires support to access and deal with services.
We have a range of social enterprises where our deaf apprentices work. Contact us if you're interested in apprenticeships.
Deaf people who use British Sign Language (BSL) now have the opportunity to report crimes online via video link. This new service called SignVideo, has been launched by Greater Manchester Police, and uses a video interpreter between the caller and police call handlers. It can be found on the GMP website, and accessed from a phone, tablet or computer.
