Claire Holland

WAITE Advocacy & Support Officer / Salford Deaf Advocacy Service Project Manager

I am Deaf and communicate in British Sign Language. I am also bi-lingual and am able to communicate via speech/Sign Supported English. In my career I have worked in various organisations such as the Royal Deaf Association (RAD) and National Deaf CAMHS as a team secretary. I also worked at UCLAN for the International Institute for Sign Languages and Deaf Studies team.

I have worked for MDC for one year now as a WAITE Advocacy & Support Officer and Deaf Ex Offender Project Worker. These roles have enabled me to gain knowledge and experience. I am delighted to accept the challenge of being promoted to Salford Deaf Advocacy Service Project Manager.

It is an exciting and rewarding role in which I can support and empower clients to secure their rights.

In my spare time, I enjoy keeping myself fit, hiking and spending time with friends/family.
