A new initiative to encourage more third sector staff and volunteers, to take up sign language as an extra language and skill is now available in Hammersmith and Fulham and surrounding areas. Signs4Life are showcasing this local initiative to help staff and volunteers, communicate with their colleagues and service users. Our next community workshop is taking place at Shepherds Bush Library, Wood Lane, W12 7BF, on Tuesday 18th December 2018 between 11:00 and 13:00.

“You never know when you will come into contact with a client, a colleague or member of the public who is autistic, deaf or visually impaired. There are over 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people registered in the UK. We are working with organisations as varied as Specsavers, The British Red Cross, prisons, supermarkets, museums, schools and hospitals. Each of our workshops help you comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and Equality Acts 2010 and encourage a ‘can do’ approach to the 12 million people in the UK who have a physical, sensory or learning disability,” explains Ms Sara Phillips, Signs4Life tutor.
