Translating and Interpreting services
The following services are available at the Council's town centre offices at the Basildon Centre...
Sign Language Interpreting
We have basic British Sign Language (BSL) communicators who can help with:-
- Housing applications
- Council Tax enquiries
The service provides confidential interpretation between sign language and spoken English.
We aim to be as flexible and responsive as possible and will act as an aid to communication between deaf and hearing people.
If English is not your first language and you need help in talking/explaining or understanding a letter, documents bills etc. we can help by providing the information in your own language.
If English is not your first language we can use a telephone interpretation service to help with meetings and conversations between yourself and Council officers.
Blind and Partially Sighted
If you are blind or partially sighted we can provide information in large print or braille translation.
