Scottish Government announces plans to recruit Deaf BSL users to BSL National Advisory Group

Tuesday 22 December

The Scottish Government has today announced plans to recruit ten Deaf BSL users to the British Sign Language (BSL) National Advisory Group (NAG), which will advise Scottish Ministers on what should be included in the first BSL National Plan.

Two places on the group will be reserved for Deafblind people who use BSL, and two will be for young Deaf people who use BSL. An eleventh place will go to the hearing parent of a Deaf child, and nine places will be taken by public bodies who are subject to the new legislation.

The closing date for applications is Thursday 28 January 2016 at 11.59pm.

The Deaf Sector Partnership (DSP), which has been created by the Scottish Government to support implementation of the new BSL (Scotland) Act, is working across Scotland to encourage and support a large and diverse number of Deaf / Deafblind BSL users to apply.
