April Lipscombe

Communication Support Worker

My name is April. I have used British Sign Language since I was very young as I am a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) 

I joined Positive Signs in September 2023 as a Communication Support Worker after previously working as an administrator for a charity. I wanted to change my career and join positive signs as I had heard about the wonderful work that Sally and her team are doing to support and elevate deaf people within the community and I wanted to be a part of that movement!

It is an absolute pleasure to be a part of such an exciting team who are constantly thinking of innovative ways to make life more inclusive for Deaf people as well as educating the hearing community and employers on Deaf awareness.

 I am very passionate about Deaf people’s rights and strive to always uphold the Positive Signs values of bringing equality to Deaf people in every aspect of their lives.
