Our British Sign Language (BSL) Plan 2024-30

British Sign Language (BSL) is the primary language for many children and young people in Scotland and it is crucial that children and young people are supported to access the language of their choice at any age. Our BSL Plan sets out actions we will take to promote and protect the rights of young BSL users, how we will involve them in our work, as well as promote the use of BSL and to improve access to information and services for BSL users.

Coimhead air ar Còraichean (Let’s Explore Our Rights)

The book, beautifully illustrated by Corinna Campbell and available in both Gaelic and English, takes young children on a journey to discover rights such as having a safe home, the right to be healthy, to learn, and to play. An audio and video version of the book has been recorded by Mirabelle, a 10-year-old pupil from Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce P6. She mentioned that it was fun to read the book and appreciated that it is available in both Gaelic and English. Commissioner Nicola Killean emphasized that “Let’s Explore Our Rights” explains to very young children the importance of rights in a way they can understand.
