My Name is Verity Gibson. I became a trustee after I retired in 2003
following my time as Sensory Support Manager. One of the major aims
of the team as it developed was to improve access for Deaf people
through communication support, firstly with sessional workers and
then with a professional team of Interpreters who could provide a
consistent and available service. It was for that reason I became a
Trustee after retiring.
