DCS started in 2004 providing communication support, in Colleges and Adult Learning Centres, for Deaf people whose first language is British Sign Language. Ann Roxburgh-Reid (Partner) has over 25 years of experience working with Deaf people and Pete Roxburgh-Reid (Partner) has over 15 years experience working in a variety of Social Services settings providing administrative and management support. Over the years we have been asked to provide British Sign Language (B.S.L.) communication support in a variety of settings including Adult Education, Training Agencies and increasingly we have been asked to provide communication support for employment related meetings and training.
Another element of the services DCS provides is Independent Living Support. We work with service users in their own homes and the local community. Our main focus is to support individuals to do as much for themselves as possible and retain their independence in all aspects of their lives. Part of our role is healthcare and we support clients in arranging medical appointments and subsequent healthcare regimes prescribed by the doctors or specialists.
