BSL cafes

Hand signing British Sign Language signs for B, S and L

As part of our Athena SWAN and inclusiveness activities, IHW now runs a monthly cafe-style event for staff and students interested in learning more about British Sign Language or practising existing BSL skills.

Led by Public Health's Lorraine Waddell, the aim is to provide an informal environment in which to explore BSL, whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced user, and to raise awareness of deaf culture.

Provisional dates for the next few cafes, which take place at 1 Lilybank Gardens between 12.30 and 1.30pm, are as follow.

Wed 25 Mar 2020
Thurs 30 Apr 2020
Wed 20 May 2020
Wed 24 Jun 2020
Thurs 30 Jul 2020

Tea/coffee and biscuits will be served from 12.30pm.
