The Association of Communication Support Workers

Communication Support Workers (CSWs) are professionals who support the communication of Deaf students in education at all ages, and Deaf people in many areas of work, using a variety of methods including British Sign Language.

ACSW is a National Association that aims to support and represent the interests and views of CSWs and their Deaf users. The Association seeks to encourage good practice in communication support and to improve the training standards and opportunities for current and future CSWs.

The Association aims to provide a much-needed professional network; improving information exchange, professional standards and support.
