Sign Language Week 2022

14th March-20th March

BSL Brings Us Together

Sign Language Week is celebrated each year in March to coincide with the anniversary of the recognition of British Sign Language (BSL) by the UK Government in 2003. Sign Language Week is an initiative of the British Deaf Association (BDA).

Zebra Access asked some of the Deaf people living in the Black Country some questions related to Sign Language Week 

Here are a series of videos highlighting British Sign Language and how it brings us together.
