Al-Moubayed Brothers - AMB Deaf Accessibility
Feras Al-Moubayed and Wael Al-Moubayed
We are Deaf brothers and native British Sign Language (BSL) users, and we are the founders of AMB Deaf Accessibility.
At AMB, our mission is to create a more accessible world for Deaf and hard of hearing (HoH) individuals, promoting equality in everyday life. With our extensive careers, we have developed strong connections within the Deaf community, both in the UK and internationally, and have been involved in various global Deaf projects.
We offer a variety of courses designed for those who want to learn BSL or enhance their BSL skills. Our bespoke courses for organizations are tailored to your specific needs, focusing on the fundamentals required to achieve your goals. We provide both remote and in-person 1:1 or group lessons, which can be customized to your learning preferences.
AMB can enhance your organization's ability to provide exceptional customer service to Deaf individuals by equipping you and your staff/colleagues with sufficient BSL competency for effective communication. We develop custom BSL training courses for frontline staff, offer Deaf Awareness training, and provide comprehensive specialist support to ensure your services are fully accessible. We will empower you to recognize when a BSL interpreter is necessary, as certain situations may require specialized communication, for which a qualified interpreter would be essential.
We understand that confidence is a key component of successful communication, which is why all our courses are designed to be engaging, enjoyable, and to boost your confidence as a communicator. Our goal is to improve accessibility for Deaf individuals, and we believe the best way to achieve this is by making Deaf culture more accessible to you.
