Guidelines for Cathedrals and Churches when deaf people are present
Based on a leaflet issued by The National Deaf Church Conference of the Church of England
- Deaf People need to be seated where there are clear sight lines both to the Sign Language Interpreter and the main "action" of the service. If there is a Loop System, they should be seated within it. It is always advisable to ask a Deaf Person where he/she would/should be seated as background windows/lights can cause their vision to blur when their eyes are focused on the Interpreter.
