Who Are We?
All the staff at Deaf Solution Ltd are Deaf. Almost all have BSL (British Sign Language) as their first and preferred language and all are fluent in BSL. All staff are immersed in the deaf community and identify strongly with deaf culture. It is very important that our clients who are deaf are supported by someone who is able to match their language needs and this can only be done by people whose first language is BSL.
Many are staff are also trained in Deafblind communication enabling us to support people who are deafblind.
Currently, we employ 12 staff but we are growing all the time as our client base develops. If you feel you would add value to our team please contact to register your interest and request an application form. We are always interested in receiving enquiries from people who feel drawn to care for people and want to make a difference in people’s lives. Head to the Contact Us page and get in touch.
David has had a varied and interesting career starting out in IT and working primarily in Scotland but also travelling throughout the world. Leaving the world of IT David began as a carer progressing to Deaf Community Liaison Officer for Rotherham Council.
When this post finished David set up Deaf Solution as he realised there was a need for deaf support but this was not being met. Over the years Deaf Solution Ltd has grown and is now one of the leading specialist agencies in the region and the only one offering support from a Deaf led organisation.
