More about communication support

What information do you need to make a booking?

Please give as much information as you can, including:

  • date, time and duration
  • venue and number of people attending
  • what it’s for – interview, meeting, conference, medical appointment etc
  • background information and any handouts that will be used on the day.
How much notice should we give when booking communication support?

Please give as much notice as possible, ideally a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice, where possible but in an emergency situation we would ask for at least an hours’ notice before you need communication support.

How many communication professionals will we need?

When making a booking, please ask for advice on whether you’ll need one or two communication professionals. For meetings of up to two hours, one person is usually enough (as long as there are breaks).
