British Sign Language Plan 2018-2023

Our BSL Plan

The Scottish Information Commissioner has published a BSL plan, in line with the British Sign Language (Scotland) Act 2015. It sets out the 14 actions we will take in the period 2018-2023 to improve access to information and services for BSL users.

Our Plan starts from the principled position that BSL is a language in its own right and that BSL users, like all other citizens of Scotland, have the right to engage with and access information about the Scottish Information Commissioner and our services when they so choose, without unnecessary barriers, including language barriers.
