SignVideo BSL Live
To make it easier for Deaf British Sign Language (BSL) users to access Council services, we have teamed up with SignVideo to provide SignVideo Web Access Points at some of our One Stop Centres and SignVideo Web Access to enable people to use this service from their own home.

Allow you to communicate with the Council’s Customer Services instantly through an online professional BSL video interpreter who will talk to the person you would like to contact and sign their responses to you. This is a FREE service which is available Monday to Friday during normal office hours. Ask at the Enquiry Desk and a member of staff will connect you to an online BSL video interpreter.
