giving something back
How We Help

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.

Giving goals

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.

Here are 4 ways in which we give back:

1. Deaf Education media project

Despite being in the developed world, deaf children in the UK are not guaranteed a consistent, accessible and high quality education. The Guardian published an article stating that Educational support for deaf children in England ‘in complete disarray’.  A report shows that the number of specialist teachers has been cut...

2. Providing Interpreter Education to Sign Language Interpreters in developing countries

The connection starting when we received an email from one of our Sign Language Interpreters - Wendy Everingham telling us about the time she spent volunteering in Burundi within the local deaf community. She first went out there in 2011 accompanying a deaf person visiting from the UK and volunteering as an Interpreter....

3. Houses of Parliament

One of Parliament’s main role is to examine the work of the government through questioning ministers, debating and committee work.  Another central role of Parliament is to make new laws as well as making changes to existing legislation. In order to reduce inequalities, it is vital that deaf people are...

We contacted terptree for a signer to help us out at a Parents Evening.  They quickly found someone in the local area that was happy to come out in the evening to sign and accompany a parent around the hall translating their child’s progress.

We were very happy with the quick prompt service that we received from terptree.  They liaised well between us and the signer. Thank you, we will certainly use terptree again.

We were introduced to terptree by a student; our Disability Advisor then researched the company and assessed our requirements in line with DSA.
The student successfully graduated after receiving the support. We would engage in their services again if we need to in the future and recommend them to others. It’s also great to have a partnership with a company as reputable as terptree!
In addition to the service provided to the student, the administration of the whole procedure was easy and straightforward! They were extremely responsive, timely and helpful.

Sky Productions inherited terptree as a ‘recommended company’ from previous colleagues and managers. But we are more than happy to continue relationships with them.

We use both technical and colloquial terms, so it’s so beneficial to be able to use a BSL Interpreter provider that understand these, and the interpreters from terptree can do so.

Using terptree has enabled us to have a more personal relationship with our deaf team member that is more than just the written word in emails and text messages. It means we can communicate on a broader level, so it’s beneficial to both her and us.

There is improved understanding and a better rapport. We can also provide a more effective ‘person to person’ staff training process and address any issues in an appropriate manner and environment.

We highly recommend terptree to anyone needing more than an average BSL interpreter!
