contactSCOTLAND-BSL is holding a free webinar on Thursday 23rd January, 2:30pm – 3:30pm, providing a brief overview of their free online British Sign Language (BSL) interpreting video relay service (VRS).
The service (funded by Scottish Government and delivered by Sign Language Interactions (SLI)) enables Scotland’s BSL and D/deaf communities to make contact with all public bodies and third sector organisations. Since June, the service has been extended to 24/7 provision and now also provide calls to the private sector.
The webinar will use the Zoom platform, and will cover:
- what contactSCOTLAND-BSL is
- how it is used
- how organisations can promote access for D/deaf BSL users
- arranging on-site visits and staff training
contactSCOTLAND-BSL is free to use for members of the BSL and D/deaf communities, and all public bodies and third sector organisations. They hope to use this webinar to promote their service to both third sector organisations, and members of these communities, and encourage more third sector organisations to sign up to the service.
Places are limited, and booking is essential.
