Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People has existed since 1866. Throughout its long history, the single objective has been to respond to the expressed needs and aspirations of deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, blind and partially sighted people. This has been achieved by the active participation of sensory impaired people, both as members of committees at every level and as members of staff.
The Leeds Sign Language Interpreting Service (LSLIS) is based at the Leeds Centre for Deaf and Blind People, and was established in 1995. The service provides a confidential and impartial sign language interpreting service to all deaf people living within the Leeds area. LSLIS ensures that deaf people can access every part of life. We also have many years experience in delivering a high quality braille transcription service and are experienced in delivering professionally presented braille translation and braille transcription to very tight deadlines.
