Organisation Description

At Signature we are passionate about improving communication between deaf, deafblind and hearing people, and creating better communities in the process. We want to make sure that deaf and deafblind people have the same opportunities as everyone else, and the same access to education, employment and services.

We advise government and businesses in ways they can improve their services, and campaign and lobby for better access. We are the leading awarding body for qualifications in British & Irish Sign Language, deafblind communication and other deaf communication methods
