RNID calls for more government tie-ups

RNID has urged charities to develop better partnerships with government to ensure the modernisation of public services.

In its third Impact report, the charity claims to have disproved the theory that charities sacrifice their independence by working closely with government departments, by highlighting its achievements for deaf and hard-of-hearing people through partnerships with government and the private sector.

"RNID is at the forefront of public service reform, creating unique partnerships that have delivered vitally needed and substantial change for deaf and hard-of-hearing people," said John Low, chief executive at RNID.

"These partnerships have not prevented us from lobbying the Government for changes in legislation and policy, especially on the Communications Act, where we have effected major changes in subtitling requirements for all television companies," he said.

The charity's Impact report follows its successful campaign managing the modernisation of NHS Audiology Services.
