Institution/Organization: Bindman & Partners Solicitors

Notice: I am a solicitor at Bindman & Partners Solicitors in London (http://www.bindmans.com)
assisitng one of my colleagues, Alison Stanley, who is representing a deaf and dumb Turkish asylum seeker.

Part of our client's case is that the facilities and support available to deaf people in Turkey is almost non-existant.

In making this argument, we will need to submit to the Home Office documentation which can confirm this argument.

Does anyone have any resource suggestions?
