sarah gatford

Sarah Gatford is a Registered Qualified BSL Interpreter with the National Register of Communication Professionals With Deaf and Deaf-Blind People - NRCPD (RSLI). Qualifying in 2000 and being an NVQ Interpreting Assessor, she has broad based experience of working in education, employment, legal and mental health settings and specialises in theatre interpreting.

Sarah’s business had been established for 4 years when we met and the last 12 months had been particularly difficult with austerity cuts effecting the funding available to support the services she offers so she was open to a business review to help her focus on the key issues impeding business growth and to help her understand the relevant business support projects that could help her move forward.
