British Sign Language

SCRA is committed to ensuring that people who are deaf or hard of hearing have full and equal access in the Children’s Hearings System.

We have published our BSL Action Plan 2024-2029. It will shortly be available on our website in BSL video format.

We have a number of information films available on our website in BSL and with subtitles. You can access them below.

If you are a BSL user and would like to make a complaint, you can text us on 07795 665570. This number will not be able to make or receive calls. Please see below for how to contact us.

If you are participating in a Children’s Hearing and need a BSL interpreter, please let the Reporter know or get someone to contact the Reporter on your behalf. If you have a preferred BSL interpreter, please provide their name and contact information to the Reporter and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
