At Deafway, we have full commitment in using sign language in all of our services and our staff are required to achieve BSL Level 2.

As new staff join Deafway they attend our intensive BSL Level 1 course before starting work in their own department. After 6 months staff attend our intensive BSL Level 2 course.

We see sign languages (BSL in the UK, NSL in Nepal, USL in Uganda and other sign languages in other countries) as full, vibrant, living languages.

We believe that every D/deaf child and adult, wherever they live in the world, should have a right of access to sign language.
