Have your say on OSCR’s BSL Plan

18 Jun 2018

The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is currently seeking views on its draft British Sign Language (BSL) Plan.

This plan closely follows the Scottish Government’s BSL National Plan and sets out the actions we intend to take to promote and support BSL users (including tactile BSL) over the period covering 2018 to 2024.  It has been developed with the help of a BSL Reference Group that was made up of representatives from the BSL community.

You can read a copy of our draft BSL plan here.

Alternatively, you can view the BSL video below which contains the draft plan and details on how to respond to this consultation.


The 11 week consultation runs until 31 August 2018.  Any organisation or individual with an interest in our work can respond.

You can respond with feedback in the following ways:

  • send an email to info@oscr.org.uk putting ‘BSL Plan’ in the subject line
  • contact us by post using the following address: OSCR, 2nd Floor, Quadrant House, 9 Riverside Drive, Dundee, DD1 4NY
  • BSL users can contact us via the contactScotland BSL video relay service at http://contactscotland-bsl.org/

After the BSL Plan is formally launched, OSCR will still invite feedback from stakeholders and make any further changes where appropriate.  We will also contribute to the Scottish Government’s national progress report in 2020.

OSCR’s Head of Engagement Jude Turbyne said,

‘It is important to OSCR that all of our stakeholders are aware of who we are, what we do and how they can contact us. BSL users should be able to easily access information about all of our functions and be confident about being able to communicate with us.

‘This consultation is an excellent opportunity for someone to contribute towards this goal. We will carefully consider all of the responses and look forward to seeing the views that can help shape our plan for the better.’
