British Sign Language Week : Mythbusters and Alphabet

British Sign Language Week : Mythbusters and Alphabet

British Sign Language (BSL) week celebrated this month what the British Deaf Association calls the nation’s ‘fourth indigenous language’. The Sign Language Week website raises awareness of the United Kingdom’s Deaf community and provides a platform for Deaf people to proudly promote their language and culture. You can also learn some BSL on the site.

Locally, to highlight BSL week the Deaf Advice Service at Citizens Advice Sheffield, based at The Circle, Rockingham Lane, have circulated the BSL fingerspelling alphabet with an overview of their work and Five Common Myths about deafness and hearing loss. All of the Deaf Advice team are fluent British Sign Language users and provide advice to Deaf people on a full range of issues including debt, housing, employment, discrimination and access to health care.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
