Royal National Institute for the Deaf and hard of hearing people (RNID) operate a national telephone relay service known as RNID Text Relay. The service is for deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, deafblind and speech-impaired people.  It provides a link between any textphone user and an operator and it is a discreet and confidential service.

The call will be answered by an RNID Text Relay operator who is brought into the call. They will then assist you with your call and act as a communicator for the service required. This service is funded by BT and calls are charged at the local rate.
