How do I make my business Deaf-friendly?

There are lots of ways to make your business friendly and welcoming to people who use sign language. Here are some examples:

  • Clear signage with visuals that show where facilities (toilets) are
  • Have a menu to hand so that a person doesn’t have to try and point to an image above your head
  • Clear pricing information
  • Deaf Awareness training for staff
  • Using Sign Language interpreters for discussions e.g. job interviews, hire purchase contracts, training sessions and so on

Deaf friendly businesses recognise that we all have different communication needs and abilities.
