We’re looking for a news presenter!

The good people at BBC Cambridgeshire are teaming up with Cambridgeshire Deaf Association to create a short weekly local news bulletin in British Sign Language .. and we’re looking for someone to present it!

BBC News provide national news in British Sign Language translators twice daily on the News Channel and now, for a six-week trial, we’ll be working with the BBC to provide the top stories from Peterborough and Cambridgeshire once a week in British Sign Language .. with subtitles too.

This means the Deaf BSL community in our area will, for the first time, have access to high quality local news in BSL.

Want to be a part of it?

We’re looking for someone who is very confident in front of the camera, is fluent in British Sign Language, has English skills (script will initially be in English) and can commit to one or two hours a week in Cambridge for the duration of the 6-week trial. We’ll pay £30 for each bulletin.

If you’re interested, please contact us by email office@cambsdeaf.org and you’ll be invited for an audition.

 

 

 

Vacancy: Volunteer Coordinator

We are inviting applications for the newly created role of Volunteer Coordinator in our exciting and growing charity.

We’re about to launch a new Volunteer Befriending project across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough which will provide thousands of hours of volunteer befriending support as well as recruiting volunteers to assist adults to learn to make use of their new cochlear implants.

So we’re looking for a great person to make it all happen as part of our dynamic and focused team.

We’re proud of our growing team at CDA. We’re also proud of our history and the work we do in the communities we serve – but there is much work still to do.

If you believe in equality for deaf people and that you can make a difference; if you believe in the power of teamwork and love to take responsibility; if you have the skills and experience and like to feel good – through doing good – then we want you to apply.

Apply online by uploading a covering letter and your CV. We won’t accept applications made by post or by email.

The covering letter must explain why you think you could be the right person for the job. If you prefer, you can upload a BSL video (or a link to a video) instead of the covering letter but we must see a copy of your CV. Good luck!

Closing Date 10th May

Deaf Community and Police deepen working relationship

Big steps were made today in improving access to the local police service for deaf people. A delegation from the Deaf community met with Jason Ablewhite, the Police and Crime Commissioner, and Chief Constable Alec Wood. Up for discussion was the current progress in access for the deaf community and agreeing a future working relationship between the force and local deaf community.

This meeting followed on from the first public meeting about policing and deaf people in November. Thanks to the delegation and to the Police for making the meeting possible.
