A group of our staff have been learning British Sign Language (BSL) as part of our commitment to inclusivity and equality.

Their new skills will help us to communicate better with tenants, colleagues and members of the community who are deaf or have hearing disabilities.

It is planned that more staff will learn the basics of BSL in the next 12 months, while members of the existing team will also be looking to improve their skills.

The volunteers showed what they had learned with a special Christmas message.
