Book all types of communication support
Whether you need to make a one-off booking or arrange a longer term contract, we’ll provide communication support that best meets your requirements. Choose from:
- BSL sign language interpreters (by video or face to face)
- Speech-to-text reporters
- Electronic notetakers
- Deafblind interpreters
We’ve every situation covered
It’s vital that deaf people and those with hearing loss can communicate clearly and confidently in a wide range of situations. Our experienced communication professionals can help at job interviews, work meetings, training courses, medical appointments, counselling sessions, court appearances, university lectures, meetings with bank managers, solicitors, social services and more.
Communication support you can trust
RNID (formerly Action on Hearing Loss) delivers 18,000 bookings per year and supports more than 4,000 people who are deaf or have hearing loss. We work with over 600 qualified communication professionals to provide a first-class service. Plus, we’re ISO approved (ISO 9001:2008).
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.
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.
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).
