Live Captions
 
All events will have live captions. This involves the verbatim transcription by a captioner of dialogue into text form as it is spoken live. 
 
When possible, this transcript will be available to download after the event. 
 
All films that are screening will have subtitles.
 
British Sign Language
 
All events will have British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation. One BSL interpreter will be pinned so that you will always be able to see them in each event. 
 
Audio Description 
 
Audio Description is when visual information is described by someone speaking in English. Speakers will self describe, as well as being joined by a specialist audio describer for most events. 
 
 
Fund for Childcare, Carers & Support Workers
 
Support towards the cost of childcare, carers or support workers is available on a first come first served basis for those who need it to be able to attend any of these events. This is a limited fund that we will try to spread across different sessions.
 
We will pay you:
£15 per 1 hour session
£22.50 per 90 minute session
 
Unfortunately, due to high international banking fees, we can only offer this to people based in the UK. The money will be paid directly into your bank account or alternative arrangements can be made if required. We are unable to book childcare, carers or support workers on your behalf. Please make your own arrangements.
