BID Services awarded a place on national framework to provide face-to-face and video relay sign language interpreting support

BID Services is delighted to announce it has been awarded a place on a national ESPO framework to provide face to face and video relay sign language interpreting to deaf and hard of hearing people, living in Yorkshire and Humber, The Midlands and East of England. Delivery of services commenced in July 2020 for a period of two years.

BID Services has been delivering sign language and communications support for over 25 years and is committed to reducing the communication barriers that deaf and hard of hearing people face in their daily lives.

As a charitable organisation, we focus on delivering social value throughout our service delivery chain, which positively impacts on the environments in which we operate. Through our range of initiatives, such as our deaf and hard of hearing employment service, youth and older people service for instance, we support young people and adults to become more active citizens by providing opportunities for personal development, peer support and volunteering.
