The Scottish Government’s Draft British Sign Language (BSL) National Plan is now open for consultation, and they are looking for contributions from anyone in Scotland.
The consultation aims to gather views on the proposed actions within the Plan, which has been produced in collaboration with the BSL National Advisory Group.
This draft plan covers the whole of the Scottish Government and over 50 national public bodies Scottish Ministers have responsibility for, and will cover the next 6 years to 2023. Other public bodies, including local authorities and regional NHS boards, will publish their own BSL plans next year.
There will be a number of consultation events taking place around Scotland, along with themed consultation events from the Deaf Sector Partnership. Topics currently under consideration include:
- Mental Health
The deadline for responses is Wednesday 31st May. The Scottish Government will accept responses in BSL or in English.
