Deaf Communication Service

Saving...

Fife Council Deaf Communication Service provides a range of advice, support and equipment for people with a hearing loss. This includes people who are Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, deaf-blind and Deaf BSL users.

We provide advice, support and information to carers, families and professionals in relation to deafness. This includes workplace assessments for employees with a hearing loss.

We can advise and provide appropriate communication support for meetings: for example BSL interpreters, Electronic Notetakers, Hands-on (tactile) interpreters and lip-speakers. British Sign Language taster sessions and Deaf Awareness sessions can be booked on CLMS for Fife Council Employees. Find training dates on our Training Flyer. Contact us if you require bespoke training tailored to your service needs.
