“Since the audit, and with terptree’s support, we have carried out BSL Synopsis Workshops and expanded our work with deaf actors, film makers and directors.
We work with terptree to support everything other than interpreting our performances, which are carried out by our longstanding provider. While we continue to work on improving deaf access, with an upcoming focus on tours, we would not be able to employ deaf actors without the interpreter support we get.”
“We’re over the moon about working with Victoria and the team at terptree. Their expertise means they are uniquely placed to properly understand the needs of deaf people, and are very generous in sharing their knowledge and insights with us. Our whole deaf customers experience is now well on the way to becoming the best it can be – and that is down to our relationship and the work we’ve done with terptree. Thanks guys!”
David Bellwood, Shakespeare’s Globe
“Victoria got in touch with our team to find out more about how Parliament works. After these initial discussions and session to the terptree team, Victoria spent some time with the Accessibility Team at the Houses of Parliament, offering support and guidance on how to make Parliament accessible for deaf people.
We are currently working on a joint project to create information about Parliament in BSL. Victoria is one passionate individual who is driven by making a change in the world and the project that we are working on together will definitely do that.”
Alasdair MacKenzie, Houses of Parliament

“terptree has made everything so much easier. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to book the interpreters I needed. I made one phone call to terptree and a few days later the interpreters were booked. I would recommend terptree to anybody who needs to book BSL interpreters. We all know how hard this can be but terptree made this very easy for me.”
Raena Raja, National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS)
