about us


Our Team

Northern Sign was established in 1996 as a result of the need for independent British Sign Language/English interpreting services in the North East of England.

We specialise in providing professional, efficient and effective BSL/English interpreting services to local authorities, PCT’s and NHS foundation trusts. We can offer either a comprehensive managed 24/7 service or provide interpreters for one-off assignments. We also offer our services on an ad hoc basis to anyone else who may require a BSL/English interpreter.

Northern Sign works closely with local interpreters who are all trained, registered, CRB checked and insured therefore ensuring services of the highest standard.

We can provide appropriate services for a wide range of situations including;

  • Medical appointments
  • Court and legal work
  • Tribunals
  • Social care and child protection
  • Theatre and TV work
  • Conferences and seminars
  • Work meetings and reviews
  • Weddings, funerals & social occasions
