Harry Hodgkins started this petition to UK Parliament

We are NCS Team 6 and we have created this petition: ‘No Subtitles IRL’. We would like to give you the opportunity to sign our petition to make basic sign language a requirement in customer services. We are doing this because we feel there is not enough awareness around the topic of hearing loss and deafness. For example 1 in 6 people in the uk experience some form of hearing difficulties in their life. Why are we not talking about this? To help raise awareness for people with hearing difficulties we will be organising a protest march through Weymouth Town Centre, Dorset, (30/7/2019)where we will teach members of the public basic sign language. We are also creating a series of posters to raise further awareness and a video to reach a wider audience which will be displayed on different social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter.

Do you think sign language should become a basic requirement? If so, sign NOW! 

Remember: There are no subtitles in real life.
