Deaf Multilingual Support Community (DMSC)

What we do

Our overall aim is to get Deaf people into the workplace. We help people to write their CVs, complete application forms, make phone calls and write emails to apply for work, research jobs that match the client's skills and experience, offer advice on how to conduct a positive interview, organise Access to Work funding for interviews. We have experience of the barriers Deaf people face. We aim to encourage, support and serve a Multilingual Deaf community to break-down these barriers, live independent lives and achieve their dreams.
