“Nothing about us, without us!” – British Deaf Association concerned about the lack of BSL representation in the media as DfE opens consultation on new British Sign Language GCSE
Deaf charities have welcomed a public consultation on a GCSE in British Sign Language (BSL) described as a “momentous step forward” in the proposed qualification becoming reality.
The British Deaf Association (BDA) has secured new funding for a new Equality and Rights project for Deaf people in Derby and Derbyshire. The funding has been awarded by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.
We are delighted to share the news that we have received funding from Scope, the disability equality charity, to continue our ‘Bringing our community together’ project until 2024.
Robin Ash, the BDA’s BSL Equality & Rights Co-ordinator was in East London last week, facilitating the two engagement sessions for the local Deaf community to give their feedback to Greater London Authority about their experiences of living in London.
The British Deaf Association is working with the Greater London Authority to organise 2 sessions at City Hall. We would like feedback from Deaf Londoners on what it is like to live in London as a Deaf BSL user.
