Whilst at the studio Rachel also recorded a short audio clip about why she is supporting SignHealth. You can listen to this clip, or read the transcript, below:
“Hello, I’m Rachel Shenton and I am a television actress. I have a personal connection with deafness, my lovely Dad was deafened when I was 12 years old due to cancer treatment and I saw what a huge effect that had on him. I first heard about SignHealth 3 or 4 years ago now. SignHealth provide a vital service to the profoundly Deaf community, delivering things like therapy and counselling, services supporting women effected by domestic violence and safeguarding provision for Deaf children. And all, of course, in British Sign Language, so these really sensitive conversations can happen in their own language. Which of course is essential. I support SignHealth, and I hope you will to.”
