British Sign Language Plan 2024-2030: Public Consultation

Have your say! The University of Edinburgh is undertaking a public consultation on its proposed BSL Plan for 2024-2030.

BSL is vital to Deaf, Deafblind and hard-of-hearing people across Scotland. The University of Edinburgh has an important role to play in maintaining its vitality across places and systems. 

The University's current BSL Plan ends in 2024. While significant progress has been made, much remains to be done. The Scottish Government also requires us to update our BSL Plan every six years (BSL (Scotland) Act 2015).

We are taking the opportunity to review our achievements and setbacks to date and set out a clear and direct vision for the next six years. This draft BSL Plan sets out the priorities and actions that aim to develop the use, learning and visibility of BSL at the University from 2024 to 2030.

We want to ensure that our new BSL Plan accurately reflects the priorities of staff, students and the local community. We are therefore seeking your views – whether you are a BSL user or not – on the structure and content of our draft BSL Plan 2024-2030.  

You can share your views by filling in the online survey or by attending the hybrid (online and in-person) event for BSL users, taking place on Monday 15 April, 6-8pm.
