Meet the Host, Emm Sharpe

Emm Sharpe first became involved with the Deaf community in 1985 within the school environment supporting the classroom teachers and providing personal care and support for Deaf, autistic, and disabled young people. Whilst working in this sector she discovered the beauty of British Sign Language.

Since 1985 Emm has worked across a wide range of organisations in various positions as a key worker specialising in supporting Deaf people in sheltered accommodation, charitable organisations, education, HM prison, healthcare and with individual 1 to 1 support.

Emm is active within the deaf community and has been teaching adults and children in schools for many years. Along with an extensive range of qualifications she holds a Bachelor Of Science (Hons) in Deaf Studies and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) allowing her to develop a range of bespoke and tailored course across multiple industries.

Emm works within the UK offering commercial and private tuition with a focus on helping individuals, local services and businesses understand their obligations to the Equality act of 2010.

In the last few years Emm has developed a range of courses that are designed to educate organisations on how to provide accessible workplaces and adopt a Deaf friendly environment, enabling staff and management to become Deaf Aware and are able to effectively communicate in BSL at an introductory level with their Deaf employees and clients/customers.

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
