Advocacy services using British Sign Language to make sure Deaf People are treated fairly.
SignHealth offers advocacy services (using British Sign Language) to make sure Deaf People are treated fairly and that they get what they’re are entitled to. Advocates work to help people understand complicated situations, explain their rights, and make sure their views and opinions are properly heard.
They specialise in working in mental health hospitals (for children and adults) and prisons, as well as with general issues related to care assessments, employment disputes, housing or benefits tribunals.
If you’d like support from an advocate, see their website for a form to download and return. If you’re not sure what help you need, you can call, text or email them.
