Terra support at Appeal helps Deaf Client stay in Employment

work employement terra

Terra Consultancy is proud of the work we have done to enhance the employability of Deaf people over the years, We act as a ’bridge’ between employers and Deaf employees and provide practical guidance in developing effective communication strategies, as well as assisting with Access to Work applications, providing Communication Support Workers and BSL Interpreters in the workplace and Deaf Awareness Training.

When a Deaf client came to us last month for advice after being dismissed from work, we helped clarify the disciplinary meeting notes and supported them through the Appeal process, including providing a BSL interpreter for the formal Appeal meeting. Because the client was better able to challenge a mistake and explain the misunderstanding, the original decision to dismiss was overturned with a promise of better communication in future through Access to Work support and they got their job back – brilliant news!
