At the heart of terptree is a mission to change the world for deaf people. We believe that the way to do this is to enabling access to high-quality education, whether that be for deaf people, hearing people, sign language students or sign language interpreters.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, government, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
We believe that businesses have the power to make significant change in the world, we do this through the Global Goals, which are 17 goals that were put together by world leaders to create a better world by 2030.
The two goals where we have impact are:
4. Quality education – eliminate all discrimination in education and improve universal literacy and numeracy
10. Reduced inequalities – ensure equal opportunities and end discrimination.

It is because of the services we can offer through terptree that deaf students are actually able to come here. They have the ability to access all their classes and attend appointments. And that’s integral because if they haven’t got an Interpreter then they can’t access any information and they might not be able to come to University.
I would definitely recommend them; one of the main reasons being is because I do think they offer a professional service. They are an exceptional organisation.
