2 of our workers have recently passed Level 3 of British Sign Language. This is a fantastic achievement and means that we are more able to provide quality support to young deaf people and their families. BSL is recognised in Scotland as a proper language, and hopefully will soon be taught in schools, enabling more deaf people to be able to communicate with hearing people and vica versa. In the Centre, we have been providing signing classes for young people and volunteers for the past year and many meetings are held in silence though a lot of talking certainly goes on.
If you know of any young deaf survivors who need support, let them know where we are.
