The SL First Magazine was launched in 2011 as a free publication available to the general public. Our mission is to bring together businesses and services that think about, and are accessible to all, including the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities.
For advertisers, we offer a unique opportunity to communicate directly to people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Advertisers in our magazine take the opportunity to tell our readers what they have done to be accessible to Deaf and Hard of Hearing customers, and the services they offer.
The SL First Magazine will offer features, reviews, case studies and unbiased articles for our readers. The new magazine, published in March 2013, will cover topics that the readership has shown most interest in. Written by passionate experts in their field, our contributors offer valuable advice to our readers.
Distribution of SL First (Ltd) is the UK’s first local lifestyle magazine targeted at the 1 in 6 Deaf and Hard of Hearing people.
The lifestyle magazine is widely distributed and made readily available as a digital offering. Advertorials and articles are made into BSL video clips, ensuring that BSL users can only enjoy the content. We have asked our readers what they want to see in the magazine and consequently we provide information, advice and fascinating features to a wide range of people.
