Help us improve BSL recognition in Scotland

In previous posts, we have talked about our interest in minority languages. We are also very proud to have become the first Scottish university to offer a four year undergraduate degree in British Sign Language and Translation or Interpreting. Now, we would like you to help the D/deaf and signing communities in Scotland to go one step further towards full legal recognition of BSL.

There are now only 23 days left to respond to the Scottish parliamentary consultation on a proposed BSL Bill. We need to raise the number of responses – we’re aiming for 1,000 responses to beat the previous record!

To make it even easier for you, the Scottish Council on Deafness have uploaded sample answers to their website (in English and BSL) If you wish to post responses and petitions, please send them to Mark Griffin MSP, Room M1:20, Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh EH99 1SP. Thank you!
