Translation and alternative formats we provide
We aim to provide access to our information and services tailored to people’s needs.
We can provide written information in an alternative language or format, where we perceive there is a genuine need. This might mean we provide you with a summary or extract for longer documents, or it may be more appropriate to talk you through the document with you. The suitability of these options will depend on your needs.
We can also provide an interpreter, signer or lip speaker to communicate our information, where we perceive there is a genuine need. If you need to contact us by telephone but have limited or no English, we will use a telephone interpreting service.
You can read our translation and interpretation policy here.
We are committed to ensuring our employment policies and practices are fair, advance equality, eliminate discrimination and foster good relations.
Each year we publish a summary of the employment monitoring data we have collated to review how we are doing.
