Our staff

All of our staff receive specialist training and have in-depth knowledge of the challenges experienced by people with a sensory loss.

We support our staff to become qualified and competent in communication skills. These include communication tactics for hard of hearing and deafened people, British Sign Language and deafblind communication.

Since 2003 we have been recognised and accredited as an Investors In People company.
