Consultation on the Pan-Ayrshire British Sign Language (BSL) Plan

Following the launch of the Scottish Government National BSL Plan in October 2017, we have developed a draft shared plan that covers the whole of Ayrshire. This shared plan is based on the national plan and involves NHS Ayrshire and Arran, the three Ayrshire Local Authorities and the Health and Social Care Partnerships. We would like you to consider the draft plan and give us your feedback.

This consultation closed on Friday 6 July 2018.
