Plans to integrate sign language into everyday life!

Hi everyone!
We came across some amazing news this week for the Deaf community in Scotland!
Many of you may have seen on the news how the Scottish government has recently announced plans to integrate the use of BSL in everyday life. This is a huge step the government has taken in making sure the deaf community is fully heard. Although the measures are being implemented in only certain sectors for the moment, nonetheless its a step in the right direction!
At Lingoing we fully support this move and hope that this plan is implemented soon in our neck of the woods too!
