15 MayRelay Services – Open Letter Update

Firstly to say, thank you to everyone for signing the letter and all the support since its publication.

The letter has produced a lot of interest in the media, see the news report provided.

We are grateful for the responses so far, all these show there is a commitment to finding a solution to ensure deaf people have equivalent access to telecoms services and recognition that the regulatory route will at best provide a limited solution.

We will update you as soon as we make progress with the invitation to meet in open forum.

If you want to know more about the campaign, or get involved please contact
