What is the consultation about?

Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeen Health and Social Care Partnership are inviting your feedback to develop our 2nd British Sign Language Plan that will be valid from May 2024 – May 2030.

We remain committed to ensuring that British Sign Language is recognised and accessible in the information, goods and services we deliver across all our operations.

To achieve this, we need you to tell us about your experience, the barriers you face and ideas on how we can progress actions together. Please take a few minutes to respond to the following questions.

The consultation is open from 29th March to 19th April 2024.

BSL version of the survey is available here British Sign Language | Aberdeen City Council
