Welcome to Access Ambassadors

We are a Deaf-led organisation based in Milton Keynes. We exist to support

and enable deaf access in Milton Keynes.

Our mission:

We aim to remove communication barriers between d/Deaf and hearing

people. As a Not-for-Profit organisation, we do this by creating excellent

learning experiences through teaching British Sign Language and running

Deaf Awareness courses.

Working with individuals and organisations, we take a collaborative

approach to engender a sense of belonging for our Deaf Community

members in Milton Keynes. We encourage organisations to create inclusive,

accessible services. We also support deaf access to learning and

employment opportunities.

Our Access Ambassadors actively encourage others to join us in working

towards an inclusive and cohesive community.

We also provide independent living support, advice, information and

support a range of accessible social activities. For those that need

employment support, we also provide interpreting support before, during

and after the job application process. We invest back into the community by

supporting groups such as MK Deaf Zone.

How is Access Ambassadors funded?

We do not receive any statutory funding. Our funding comes from our

training, consultancy services and fundraising activities. The funding we

gain is used for the benefit of local deaf and hard of hearing groups in

Milton Keynes.

Our Values:

Access Ambassadors supports deaf and hard of hearing individuals whilst

adhering to these core values:

Diversity – recognising that we are all different

Independence – enabling freedom to determine one’s actions

Integration –  encouraging inclusion and belonging

Transparency – all our actions are open and carried out with integrity

If you would like further information about our services then please contact our office.

Please note that we are unable to provide emergency support. In this instance, we refer individuals to the hearing impairment services funded by MK Council.
