From January 2021 to January 2022 annual CPIH* is 4.9%. This means many support workers (interpreters, speech to text, lipspeakers), etc. are having to put up their fees.
(1) This may mean that you need to increase your ATW award. (If you have a capped award you can't increase it).
(2) If you have enough budget, you may just need to increase the amount you can pay support workers each hour.
(3) Or you may need to ask to increase your award and hourly rate.
If you have this problem then you need to get three new quotes, showing the new rates, and make a 'change of circumstances' request, sending the three quotes as evidence of the increase in fees.
Let DeafATW know if this works for you, or you have problem with this.
*CPIH = Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ Housing costs
