BSL Consultation shared a post.
June 27
Posted by Linda Richards
Linda Richards to British Sign Language (Scotland) Act (2015)
June 27

Post from Linda Richards,
BSL Communications Officer for the
Scottish Government.

On behalf of the Scottish Government, thank you all very much for your res...ponses to the BSL Consultation. This ran for three months between 1st March and 31st May 2017.

It has been fantastic to receive so many responses with ideas and solutions. This is why the BSL Consultation is important - to give you a chance to say what you think of the Draft BSL National Plan.

The Scottish Government would also like to thank those of you who did so much to make sure people were able to give their responses. Holding meetings, visiting, filming through Skype or FaceTime, having drop-in clinics, supporting each other on Facebook, and much, much more. Thank you.

Your responses were published on Friday 23rd June 2017. Here is the link: https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/…/published_select_responde….

This is not the full list. It is the list of those who gave permission for publication. Some with names. Some without names. There was a third group who contributed but didn’t wish their names or submissions to be published.

The Scottish Government - via the research team and two SG officers, Hilary Third (Team Leader) and Gordon Hay (BSL Policy Officer) - are now working hard to go through all your responses and will use these to help change or improve the BSL National Plan.

We will keep you informed about the next steps and what will happen before the final BSL National Plan is published.

Thank you.

Giving feedback in BSL:
https://youtu.be/kU_aRT4d2cU

...

Guide transcript below:
- The BSL Consultation can be done online but if you prefer to give this in BSL, you can.
- There are two ways of doing this. Via the Facebook page or via the website. On the website, you can add an attachment of your video link and submit that.
- If you post on Facebook = this means it is 'public'. [People can see what you have signed.]
- If you post your video online, you can say if you want it published with your name, published without your name, or, not to publish and no name.
- The report about the responses to the National Plan - may refer to what some people or organisations have said.
- So you have a choice.
- 'Not published' Private means it could be something which is 'for information' to the Scottish Government only.
- Best to stick to the point, give ideas, example or solutions - answer the questions.
- How will the Research group in the Scottish Government know what the BSL says?
- That's Linda's job. Gordon is the BSL Policy Officer. Linda, as BSL Communications Officer, is responsible for two things - managing the BSL Consultation Facebook page and translating any BSL video submissions into written English and passing this on to the Research Team.
- Remember, 31st May is the deadline. All work on the National Plan will then be in place for 6 years [from October 2017] until 2023 which is when the next review will be.
