Sign Live – Improving communication for Thalidomide Trust beneficiaries

We have partnered with a BSL Online Interpreting Service called SignLive.

If you are a BSL user, you can now use SignLive to connect to an online professional BSL interpreter from your own device, to talk to us here at the Trust. Just tell them you are calling “The Thalidomide Trust”.

You only need to register with SignLive once and you will be able to connect with us quickly via SignLive’s Community Directory, clearly highlighted with our logo. This is a FREE service which is available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
