Let's Connect - using SignVideo

The Video Relay Service (VRS) supplier for our British Sign Language (BSL) and Irish Sign Language (ISL) customers has changed to SignVideo.

Customers will continue to be able to contact us through VRS. Staff will be able to speak directly to deaf customers via a Sign Language interpreter.   

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you can get in touch with us using online British (BSL) and Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpretation.

You can contact us to:

  • discuss your tenancy
  • access advice and support on your housing situation
  • report a repair
  • receive grants assistance and more
