We’re delighted to announce that Birmingham-based Olivier Jamin has joined the team as our new Operations Coordinator.

Love watching videos, films or TV in BSL? If so, we understand that it can often be tricky to find a range of high-quality information in the format in which you need to access it, ie. BSL.
We’re delighted to say we have a new YouTube education channel which aims to address this lack of information. Log on and see our latest videos, all properly signed by a highly qualified interpreter, and with subtitles, while we have a Deaf BSL user lined up to work with us on future films.

So we’re now cheering up every Monday afternoon between 1 and 3pm with our new drop-in sessions for Deaf students.
