Demonstrations of a new service to help deaf British Sign Language (BSL) users access council services are being held on 25 November.

As part of our new British Sign Language Plan we are working to make it easier for deaf BSL users to contact us. We're working with a new national service, contactScotland-BSL, which can allow deaf BSL users to get in touch with us and other services.

We're making it easier for deaf BSL users to contact us
