Welcome to Access Ambassadors

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.

Our Access Ambassadors actively encourage others from our local community to join us in working towards an inclusive and cohesive community.

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.

We also set up projects to improve employability and personal independence skills.

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
