British Sign Language (BSL) cafés

Person using the BSL sign for B

As part of our Athena SWAN and inclusiveness activities, SHW now hosts 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/deaf culture.

The dates of forthcoming meet-ups will be published here as and when they are confirmed. 

In addition to face to face meet-ups, we also have a MS Teams facility. Anyone with an interest in learning this language and/or in finding out more about Deaf/deaf culture is most welcome to join us either in person or online.
