Michael's Story

“I was new to using interpreters at work so AD made sure I had interpreters when I needed them and that I didn’t exceed my ATW budget. Having interpreters for meetings and general office discussions meant I could just get on with my work and after a few months I got a promotion.”

Bela’s Story

“I struggled to follow work meetings when my hearing deteriorated due to old age. I was shown the different types of equipment that I could use at home and at work. The equipment was excellent and I can continue to contribute to my work place with a new lease of life.”

Rose’s Story

“I felt isolated living in a hearing community. Now I have a Personal Assistant who I can sign with. My PA helps me get on with my life as normal and even helps me keep in touch with my son. My PA helped me arrange a meeting with my son, it was really emotional!”

John’s Story

“My local Deaf charity was having problems providing care services to my wife. Action Deafness stepped in to support the charity and brought a completely new way of working. The paper work improved and the managerial support for our carer really made a difference to the care my wife received.”
