Engaging with British Sign Language (BSL) users
Dochart Suite Hosted by Deaf Sector Partnership & contactSCOTLAND-BSL
Need to find new ways of supporting and engaging with Deaf / Deafblind British Sign Language (BSL) users in your community? Come to our event to find out how to do this. The Deaf Sector Partnership (DSP) in collaboration with contactSCOTLAND-BSL and Scottish Government will show you how to promote, raise awareness and improve engagement for BSL users in the third and public sector. We are working together to implement the British Sign Language (Scotland) Act 2015 and raise awareness of the needs of deaf people. We will cover how both third and public sector organisations can increase their engagement with Deaf / Deafblind BSL users in Scotland. contactSCOTLAND-BSL is the Scottish Government’s Video Relay Service, which public bodies and third sector organisations can use for free. We can show you how it works.
