Hello I am a former 'terp', British Sign Language interpreter(Deaf Studies & Sign language Interpreting University of Bristol, UK 1996) amongst other things I am a volunteer Media Advocate for @SayingGoodbyeUK an organisation working nationally to mark infant losses of UK parents.
We at Saying Goodbye are running non-denominational services in memory of our ‘lost/angel’ babies. These services are going to allow parents to remember their lost babies. Their infants lost through miscarriage, stillbirth and early infant death.
In support of the good work I am trying to find volunteer interpreters in order to include the deaf community in these services. As a mother who has suffered many infant losses and as deaf person I would love to see interpreter access being offered. Saying Goodbye are relying on many of us to volunteer and I am hopeful some of you may be able to offer your time voluntarily. 2012 locations & dates.
There are seven confirmed services in 2012 and we hope to have a minimum of fifteen services in 2013 Cardiff - 03/11/12 - 3pm South - TBC London SP - 24/11/12 - 5pm Bristol - 08/12/12 - 3.30pm Exeter - 15/09/12 - 3pm Edinburgh - 22/09/12 - 3pm York - 29/09/12 - 1.30pm Birmingham - 28/10/12 - 3.30pm If you think you have some spare time to offer to interpret at any of these services for this organisation please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org My website address is http://www.viviensabel.com A huge thank you to all of you who have taken the time to consider this.
