"Social Worker for Deaf British Sign Language users in Stockport, Nr Manchester"
Posted by dhc (as ),
I am Deaf BSL service user, I have found out that our (Stockport) social worker for the deaf is on annual leave for 2 weeks (1st-15th March 2010) and the service at Stopford House has been closed. meaning no services for 2 weeks. There is no replacement?. Meaning do Deaf BSL have to struggle with stress levels wanting their domestic households contacts to translate for the person also to translate the letter we receive. I find it disheartened and no wonder the percentage is above 'normal' that Deaf BSL users are being held back and causes behaviour problem among the community and the trust does effect.
Hope you can able sort out the issue.
