British Sign Language

A Shared BSL Plan for Lanarkshire 2024-2030

Executive summary

This is the second shared BSL Local Plan for Lanarkshire covering the work of NHS Lanarkshire, North Lanarkshire Council and South Lanarkshire Council. It was co-produced in partnership with the Deaf and Deafblind BSL communities of Lanarkshire -Deaf Services Lanarkshire, Deafblind Scotland, D.E.A.F. South Lanarkshire and Lanarkshire Deaf Club.

The Plan mirrors the National BSL Plan which aims to make Scotland the best place in the world for BSL signers to live, learn, work and visit. This local plan has those same aspirations for Lanarkshire and aims to both improve: the use of and understanding of British Sign Language in Lanarkshire; and the lives of Deaf and Deafblind BSL users living in Lanarkshire.

The plan for Lanarkshire sets out actions around ten priority areas:

  1. Delivering the Lanarkshire BSL Local Plan 2024-2030
  2. BSL Accessibility
  3. Children, Young People and their Families
  4. Access to Employment
  5. Health and Wellbeing
  6. Celebrating BSL Culture
  7. BSL Data
  8. Transport
  9. Access to Justice
  10. Democratic Participation
