Recognition of British Sign Language

Back to all Motions

2005 National Disabled Members' Conference
24 June 2005

Conference is outraged that teaching establishments across the United Kingdom are threatening the recognition of British Sign Language (BSL) and the future of deaf people.

We call upon the National Disabled Members’ Committee to work with the National Executive Council to continue to campaign for BSL to be recognised in reality by:

1)challenging proposals to withdraw or reduce courses that improve opportunities for deaf equality;

2)continuing its campaign for BSL to be fully recognised across the public and private sectors.
