Public Personal Messages:

We deserve the equal service you are providing for the public to be translated into our language. We, as citizens of the United Kingdom, are equal as humans. Why should we be different?

Sam (London)

I’ve been deaf since birth. I classify myself as DOHA (Deaf of Hearing Adults). I am a fully qualified and trained chef and have been in the hospitality industry for over 7 years now.
During the pandemic I was unable to work due to hospitality closing down. Even during the pandemic I was still unable to understand everyday briefings from the PM. The interpreter service would have helped me understand what is happening with the world. I am still struggling to fully understand.

Boris, please wake up!


Katie Rowley said that prime minister Boris Johnson and his government “should be setting an example to the nation” by providing accessibility and equality.

“I feel the Government don’t seem to understand or respect BSL as a full and equal language in the UK. Should we really have to beg for an interpreter?”

“I don’t watch the news because I find it rather stressful and confusing. I have to rely on my son to translate the Covid-19 update information in my preferred language in BSL.

“The problem is not that the deaf people don’t hear. The actual problem is that the Government won’t listen!”
