MARTIN JAMES

Chair

"I was a Trustee of Signal at its inception in 2013 and became the Chair of Trustees in 2018.  Signal is an exceptional charity with a truly impressive record of working with people of all ages with hearing impairments both here in the UK and in Sub-Saharan Africa.  As someone who has always worked with the community throughout my career and volunteering, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to help support the excellent staff at Signal to really make a difference across its impressive range of projects."

I became a volunteer for Signal in 2017 after retiring after 30 years of teaching.
