We are a professional association that was founded to support, collaborate with, and represent Interpreters, Translators, Lipspeakers and Deafblind Interpreters across the UK.
We are governed by our Articles of Association, which define the scope and nature of our activities, with a Board of Directors, made up of five directors and four elected directors, managing the day-to-day running of the business of the association.
We work alongside our member volunteers who represent the different communication and language service professionals that VLP supports. You can find out more about our current Board of Directors and volunteers and the work that they do here.
