We have just updated our web page aimed at providing information for National & Local BSL Plans
“The BSL National Plan has ten long-term goals. These goals represent our collective ambition for BSL in Scotland.”
Scottish Public Services: Action 5
“Promote the use of the Scottish Government’s nationally funded BSL online interpreting video relay service (VRS) called ‘contactSCOTLAND-BSL’, which allows BSL users* to contact public and third sector services and for these services to contact them, and explore the potential for its greater use.”
