10 Years of SEA
7th November 2019
10 Year Anniversary
This month SEA are celebrating a very exciting birthday! It is officially 10 years since SEA was first set up on 19th November.
Suzanne Robinson, one of the directors of SEA set up the company in 2009 having seen a gap in services for deaf people whilst working for Local Authorities as a Social Worker with deaf people and as a team leader. Suzanne found that many deaf people in care where being cared for by Support Workers who had no sign language skills or any experience in Deafness. So, she wanted to change this! Now we ensure all SEA staff have BSL Skills for working with Deaf clients.
Hayley Thornton, the second director of SEA has achieved her lifelong dream whilst working at SEA, improving access and mainstreaming services for the Deaf community. This will be achieved through the expansion of SEA’s services and making it a national service.
