Service description:
Deaf Hub CIC aims to ensure the deaf community are not excluded from opportunities that are available to their hearing peers. Their services include:

British Sign Language Interpreting Service
Deaf Hub provides registered British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters, interpreters for deafblind people, lip-speakers, speech-to-text reporters (STTR), manual and electronic note-takers, and sign language translators.

British Sign Language Interpreter Support
Deaf Hub organise regular peer support group sessions for working BSL/English interpreters. They can also arrange for formal mentoring to be put in place for both registered qualified and trainee interpreters.

Specialist Independent Deaf Advocacy
Deaf Hub’s advocates are fully qualified and the service is open to deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind people living in and around Northamptonshire.

Wellbeing Services
Deaf Hub provides activities to improve the physical, mental health and wellbeing of deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind people. Activities are run both internally and externally, working in partnership with other organisations. Deaf Hub will ensure participants have equal access to activities (regardless of whether it’s a specialist or mainstream activity).

Employment Services
Deaf Hub offers support to ensure equal access in education, employment, and training. They provide specialist workshops (both internally and externally from other organisations), which are specifically designed for deaf people. These workshops support all aspects of the job market - from job searching and application forms, to interviews and presentation. Deaf Hub also works with employers to create awareness and break down the barriers faced by the deaf community.

Training Courses
Deaf Hub offer iBSL Accredited Awards / Certificates in British Sign Language (Levels 1-3).
