15 MayRelay Services – Open Letter Update

Firstly to say, thank you to everyone for signing the letter and all the support since its publication.

The letter has produced a lot of interest in the media, see the news report provided.

We are grateful for the responses so far, all these show there is a commitment to finding a solution to ensure deaf people have equivalent access to telecoms services and recognition that the regulatory route will at best provide a limited solution.

We will update you as soon as we make progress with the invitation to meet in open forum.
