Deaf First

Deaf First has been a part of the Deaf Community since 1995, maintaining strong links with Oak Lodge School and providing support to colleges for their deaf and hard of hearing students.  During this time we have refined the support we offer to Deaf people. We offer a range of services to support and facilitate British Sign Language within London as a result.

Our Services

We offer support to Deaf individuals within a variety of industry settings. These include education, health, public services, leisure and more. We provide Communication Support Workers, Note Takers and Lip-Speakers to Deaf and hard of hearing students. Our Communication Support Workers are qualified in British Sign Language and all of our staff are trained in deaf awareness – allowing us to give the students the right support throughout their educational journey. Our team has a wealth of knowledge to support Deaf and hard of hearing students. We stand ready to support our learners.

Deaf First has a team of qualified and experienced Teachers of the Deaf who assess students and recommend appropriate support in college, thereby ensuring they have what they need to achieve. They also provide tutorials and liaise with Learning Support and college tutors on behalf of students
