Constructive feedback is always welcome...
‘Many thanks for your work over the last 6 months with ******. Having never supervised a Deaf person on a Probation Order before, I was not sure what to expect or how it would work. I fully believe that the sessions we had got through to ****** and made much sense, despite me feeling like a waffled on a bit... Thanks so much for all your advice and tips through the ups and downs along what has been a very interesting career journey and learning process.’
PROBATION OFFICER 2012
‘Thank you very much for coming to interpret last night – I hope you enjoyed yourself? Working with ***** is always a pleasure (I think?), and we did have quite a lot of deaf people in the audience, which is always a good sign! Thank you so much.’

‘Thanks for all your help with the case. I appreciate all your advice and assistance especially with preparing the defence case statement – at times we thought that would never come to an end! I look forward to seeing you again and the next time we have a client who needs BSL, I will be happy to book you again’.
‘I want to both congratulate and thank you all, for your outstanding presentations / interpretations to the recent Northern Conference in Sheffield. A quick look through the feedback at the end of the day with the planning team confirmed what I already knew, you had all received excellent scores and glowing comments about both the content and style of your presentations - WELL DONE! Thank you for the time and effort you had all put into your preparation and for the contribution you all made to the networking aspects of the day. I was very proud to be part of such an excellent team, who represented the organisation so professionally. Thank you all and yet again, well done’.

‘Many thanks for signing for me in Court. I felt afraid with all the people in the court. You made it easy for me to understand and follow what they were asking me. I felt relaxed and confident to give my evidence in front of the judge and 12 jury people.’
COURT WITNESS 2012
‘Just a few lines to thank you so much for making the event work so seamlessly yesterday. In your BSL interpreting to the audience you seemed to enable every single Deaf person to understand perfectly – including me. I have not seen this work so successfully before when such a big crown of Deaf people have attended similar events. Very impressive indeed and I look forward to booking you again.

‘I didn't know much about the case, but felt totally confident that your advice was spot on. The 'relay' situation just illustrated the point beautifully. I hope this is a catalyst for some action and all parties listen to your solid advice about the need for effective communications and skilled interpreters. See you again soon and thank you. I really do appreciate it.
‘I was just so nervous meeting HRH Prince Philip that my knees were knocking and hands were shaking - I didn’t know what to say. I just thank god that you were there and I muddled through. Thanks for being a rock Richard.
