BDA Scotland is offering a new BSL Helpline to assist Deaf people in Scotland with information, advice and support relating to councils and the NHS.
BSL Scotland Act
On 17th September 2015, a BSL Bill was passed in the Scottish Parliament, giving Scotland the BSL (Scotland) Act 2015.
Three BSL accessible events will take place at the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Universities Insight Institute between May and November this year to explore the idea of implementing the world’s first “Signing Parliament”; a democratic body representing the voice of BSL users in Scotland.
National skills agency, Skills Development Scotland and the British Deaf Association Scotland have launched a partnership to raise awareness of apprenticeship opportunities available to young Deaf people in Scotland.
Apprenticeships help you build the experience and skills that employers want to see. No matter what stage you’re at, they’ll help you get set for a bright future. And now, there are more ways than ever to get involved.
