Video calling for the deaf or hard of hearing
A British Sign language (BSL) user can connect to a BSL interpreter via video calling system SignVideo.
The interpreter will relay what you say to the police and vice versa.
This service is to report non-urgent incidents or crimes, or to ask the police for advice and information. It's not for emergencies.

- connect to a SignVideo interpreter and tell them you are calling the police 101 number
- the SignVideo interpreter may ask if you want to prepare anything before starting the call
- you'll then be connected to a 101 adviser via the interpreter
The SignVideo service is free for Greater Manchester residents, but mobile operators may charge for the data used on their network.
