SignVideo in the Community

As a provider of BSL interpreting and an active organisation in the deaf community, we try to support community activities as much as possible, from working with charity organisations to raising money ourselves.

Deaf people in the workplace

As a deaf-led organisation we strive to ensure we recognise the talents of deaf people and are always on the lookout for new faces to join our growing team in the provision of BSL interpreting services. We provide full support to our deaf employees, who work seamlessly alongside hearing colleagues using onsite interpreters and the SignVideo service of course.

Happy businesspeople

Supporting charitable organisations and events

 

We strive to support deaf and disability charities and organisations as much as we can. For example we have supported AbilityNet (a UK based charity helping disabled adults and children use computers and the internet by adapting and adjusting their technology) on a free webinar about technology for the deaf. We attend deaf groups via community outreach, offer free training sessions to the deaf community and often attend community events such as CityLit Deaf Day, DeafVibe, conferences, seminars, and many more. We take part in Deaf Awareness Week activities and currently sponsor Limping Chicken (the UK’s independently-run deaf news and deaf blogs site). We have sponsored the Deaf Sports Personality of the Year awards and our staff have even undertaken challenges for charity such as a challenge where one of our managers ran a marathon on each of the seven continents in aid of the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS), raising over £10,000 in total.

Minimising environmental impact

 

We are very focused on ensuring our impact on the environment is kept to a minimum which is why we are ISO14001 accredited. ISO14001 sets out the criteria for an Environmental Management System (EMS). It does not state requirements for environmental performance, but maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective EMS.

 

If you know of a deaf organisation that is looking for support or you are a deaf person interested to work with us to deliver the highest standard of BSL interpreting in the UK, please do get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
