National Union of British Sign Language Interpreters

Latest news

We’re celebrating our 5th anniversary

A union is its members and without your strength and support we would not be celebrating these successes, or be in a position to continue to challenging what is surely still to come.

For that we want to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all of you as we look forward to the next five years of collective action and ‘Standing up for the profession; standing with the Deaf community’.
