InterpreterNow is a social enterprise, dedicated to providing high quality services to improve the health and wellbeing of deaf people.

The UK is a vast and diverse market. The spending power of disabled people and their families is worth £212 billion. This includes deaf people who make up 1 in 7 of the population.

Making your services accessible is the right thing to do and makes good business sense.

InterpreterNow will help your business attract thousands of deaf customers and recruit and retain talented deaf employees. Our service will enable your business to comply with equality legislation and, for health and social care service providers, the Accessible Information Standard.

InterpreterNow already provides deaf people access to many different public, private and charitable organisations such as NHS England, Police 101, Public Health England and the Scottish Government.

Deaf Users

InterpreterNow is a service that enables deaf BSL users to communicate with hearing people via an online BSL interpreter.

Using a smartphone, tablet or computer, you can download the InterpreterNow app, or go to the InterpreterNow website, and connect to an interpreter.

The interpreter will phone a hearing person or organisation for you and relay the conversation. You can also use InterpreterNow if you are in a face to face situation, perhaps with your GP, a nurse or a shop assistant, by signing to the interpreter on screen.
