Breaking News: A huge win for Sign Language campaigners as a judge gives the go-ahead for the #WhereIsTheInterpreter


#WTI

“This is absolutely fantastic news for our sign language community. We are now finally have been heard”

Lynn Stewart-Taylor
Thank you to Ahmed have offered his time, skills and devotion to our #WTI by translating from English to BSL.

I’m grateful to Mr Justice Johnson for granting permission for this important challenge, which we hope to get to a Hearing as quickly as possible. The Deaf Community is entitled to expect accessible information in BSL in real-time, rather than as a token gesture and I’m pleased that we will now that the opportunity to hold the Cabinet Office to account for what I consider to be shameful breaches of the Equality Act. As proceedings will be open, I hope that supporters of Katie and the #WhereIsTheInterpreter? Campaign will be able to attend to demonstrate to the Court, and Government how important this issue is to the Deaf Community.

I’m happy to see that finally action is been taken on a situation that shouldn’t have required a fight

The deaf community deserve to have equal treatment and have access to information just as much as anyone else especially in the times we live in and technology available there’s no excuses for inequality

I hope this will be one of many changes that will happen to ensure that the deaf community are not at a disadvantage for something beyond their control

Huge well done to you for your determination to get this far and to the many supporters who have backed this. 🤞This is another step towards equality.
