Welcome to the Sussex Interpreters Direct website.
Sussex Interpreters Direct (SID) are a group of qualified, registered, freelance British Sign Language (BSL)/English interpreters based around the Brighton and Sussex area.
We are not an Interpreting agency, so any booking request you make will be sent to each of the nine, freelance, SID interpreters who will then contact you direct, if they are available.
This means that unlike Sign Language Agencies, there is no additional administration or booking fee charges as you are dealing with the Interpreter and paying them direct.
We meet you in any of these areas in Sussex:
- All areas in West and East Sussex.
We will also consider work outside of Sussex. Find out more about us all here.
We all have over 10 years of experience as Sign Language Interpreters and are all registered with the NRCPD (National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind people).
We all adhere to the NRCPD’s Code of Conduct for Communication Professionals.
NRCPD registration is vital as it assures you a level of competence, accountability and insurance.
We are GDPR compliant, please see our Privacy statement for more information.
Even if you don’t book through us, please do expect interpreters to be registered with NRCPD and ask to see their badge!
We offer British Sign Language (BSL) interpreting in a wide range of settings and venues between deaf and hearing people including:
- Legal and police
- Mental health
- Social services
- Theatre and the arts
