Scottish Ethnic Communities Fund - Zubair Hussain

Deaf Connections would like to congratulate Zubair Hussain on his successful funding award from the Scottish Ethnic Communities Fund.

Awarded: £5,198

Project Name: Minority Ethnic Community Interpreter Project

This project aims to support Scotland's Asian Deaf Community. Currently there are no Asian British Sign Language Interpreters in Scotland. The needs of deaf people are very specific to the individual and it is often difficult for mainstream interpreters to fully understand the cultural context of people from Asian Communities. An interpreter from an Asian background will have the cultural knowledge and skills to effectively advocate on behald of Asian deaf people. The funding will be utlisied to gain the BSL Level 6 Interpreter Course.
