Claire Holland

Senior 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 since 2020 as a WAITE Advocacy & Support Officer, Deaf Ex Offender Project Worker, and later as a Project Manager for the Salford Deaf Advocacy Service. These were exciting roles in which I could support and empower clients to secure their rights. The roles also enabled me to gain knowledge and experience. I am now delighted to accept the challenge of being promoted to Senior Manager.

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