Today was a fantastic experience and we’re so grateful for your support at terptree for making this possible! Our deaf team member really enjoyed the experience and got a lot out of it and is looking forward to more of the same! I would like to once more share my thanks and gratitude for everybody’s involvement.

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.

Just want to say thank you so much for the interpreters provided through terptree this year.
It has been fantastic working with terptree, if I did not understand words or meanings in the lecture – the interpreters explained them to me which I really appreciated. Looking forward to working with them again in the next term.

We discovered terptree through the student training with us, who knew of the organisation and suggested them as a source of sign language interpreters.
At the time we needed two sign language interpreters to assist with clinical training that was to take place over three days. The student was able to complete the three days of training, and both the student and the facilitators confirmed the training went smoothly. And having the sign language interpreters there enabled her to follow what is quite an intensive training course without any trouble.
terptree were so helpful! Our request was quite last minute but I received a very quick response to my emails, and an interpreter was found at short notice. We would definitely use the service again if and when required.

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!

“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.”
