On Monday 1st April, we will be 17 years old! We have grown from being 2 people in a tiny corner of the Cambridge Deaf Association to a family of 35 with over 1,500 partners. Here’s a look back on the last 12 months and everything we have built together. You, our partners, are the lifeblood of our company. As BSL/English Interpreters, Language Support Professionals, Communication Employment Consultants and NMH (Education) providers, we really value what you do for us and our clients day after day, night after night and we couldn’t do what we do without you.

I am sure you have noticed we have been busier than normal and that we have made lots of changes to the way we work; for example, we are communicating more on-line and engaging and developing our professionals. We also now have a staff team of 35 in post for April 2019, more staff appointments in London and the North East and a brand-new office in Braintree, Essex. I wanted to provide the context for these changes and let you know what you have achieved as part of the Clarion UK team over the last 12 months.
