Deaf Mugger

The government has a very useful funding scheme called Access to Work which pays for disabled people to get the assistance they need to do their job properly.

Deaf people use this fund to pay for interpreter support, or note takers. Ben Green, the writer and actor in this film, worked as an interpreter booker for See Hear and thought, taken to its logical conclusion, that deaf criminals would have the same access needs as anyone else!
