Our Ethos 

RIGHTS BASED APPROACH 

Our interpreting service is centred on a series of essential principles that focus on the belief that everyone has the right to speak and hear for themselves as well as freely express their own response.

RIGHT TO SPEAK

TRAINED PROFESSIONALS

RIGHT TO COMMUNICATION 

We believe that everyone has the right to speak for themselves and determine how they want to express themselves.

We believe in treating the interpreter as the trained professional they are, with fair employment practices and pay.

We believe that everyone has equal rights to direct communication and  participation in all matters that concern them.

INTERPRETER IS FACILITATOR 

We believe it is the interpreters' responsibility to facilitate the communication and that an interpreter with integrity will frequently ask for clarification.

EDUCATE 

We believe in encouraging organisations to respect these rights by using trained interpreters and raising awareness of how best to use interpreters.

Ethical Employment 

Our belief that interpreting is a skilled profession is supported by our employment principles. Unlike many interpreting agencies we provide our interpreters with job security, a fair wage and travel expenses.
