Our BSL Plan

Our BSL Plan is central to our work in protecting and promoting BSL.  We are committed to an action plan that is ambitious, responsive, builds on our progress and which is continually shaped by national initiatives, local needs and the priorities of BSL users. The plan’s actions will be embedded into our Equality Strategy and we will continually seek feedback from our users, through informal and formal mechanisms.
Please visit our BSL Plan document in English or in BSL on video (below).
