We are proud to provide services for every member of our diverse local population. Clear communication is vital if we are to provide effective care and accessible services. Interpreting and translating services enable effective communication with individuals for whom English is not their first language or for people with hearing or visual impairment.

The people we care for, and their families, have the right to effective and understandable communication, in a form that they can access. We have selected Sussex Interpreting Services to provide interpreting and translation services and Action Deafness to deliver British Sign Language interpreting for the Trust. This forms part of a wider strategy to ensure our services are accessible to all.
