Al-Moubayed Brothers - AMB Deaf Accessibility
Feras Al-Moubayed and Wael Al-Moubayed
We are deaf brothers; native British Sign Language (BSL) users and the founders of AMB Deaf Accessibility.
Here at AMB, we are committed to making the world a more accessible place for deaf and hard of hearing (HoH) people, with the aim to improve equality in everyday life. During our long careers, we have become well connected within the deaf community both at home in the UK and also abroad and have been involved with many international deaf projects.
We offer a range of courses for those wanting to start learning BSL or continue improving their BSL skills. We offer bespoke courses for organisations that are tailor-made to help you learn the basics required for your desired outcome. We teach both remotely and face to face on a 1:1 basis, or as a group, and can adapt this according to what you want to learn.
AMB can help improve your organisation’s ability to provide excellent customer service for Deaf people by equipping you and your staff/colleagues with enough competency in BSL to have clear and direct communication. At AMB, we develop customised BSL training courses for frontline staff, provide Deaf Awareness training and in-depth specialist support to ensure your services are fully accessible. We will provide you with the skills to be able to recognise when a BSL Interpreter is required (as certain areas may require specialist communication which is where a qualified interpreter would come in).
We recognise that confidence is a vital part of ensuring successful communication which is why you will find that all our courses are fun, engaging and will help you become a confident communicator. We want to improve accessibility for deaf people, and we believe the best way to do this is to make our deaf culture more accessible to you.
