Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 26 June 2019.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
I understand that there is an ongoing consultation to support the needs of the deaf in Jersey.
Can you tell me whether the following costed work has been carried out, or when each phase is likely to be carried out.
British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter for research interviews (including travel expenses)
BSL Interpreter for consultation meeting (including travel expenses)
speech to Text typist for consultation meeting (including travel expenses):
room hire for consultation meeting:
production of a BSL version of proposals (ie an online signed and captioned video)
Research has been undertaken to better understand the communication and support needs of the dDeaf community in Jersey. A BSL interpreter was contracted to support qualitative research interviews with BSL users in November 2018. This was at a cost of £354.32, including travel expenses.
To date, a consultation meeting has not taken place. An engagement and information event is currently being planned. A date for this event will be publicised shortly and communication support and venue costs will be available in due course.
