“From the training to the initial home visits, to the regular reviews and feedback to the school and any additional support needed, RAD has delivered a service that is very valuable and worthwhile, having a positive impact on pupil outcomes through supporting families to learn their child’s first language in the home”

“I approached RAD because we wanted to become more accessible for our deaf visitors. RAD spent time with our organisation and recommended what they thought would enhance our visitors experience.

The Deaf Awareness Training course was a huge hit with our front of house team, Russell is an excellent trainer and engaged with the entire group. The day was fun, informative and inspiring. The interpreters they provide are reliable, professional and always helpful.”
