Welcome to Lanarkshire Deaf Club SCIO (LDC)

Lanarkshire Deaf Club is about local Deaf people running their own local facilities and activities.


Charitable Status

On 1st September 2018 Lanarkshire Deaf Club (SC36628) changed its charitable status and name to Lanarkshire Deaf Club SCIO (SC048560).

Our Services

BSL Scotland Act 2015

The BSL (Scotland) Act 2015 was passed in the Scottish Parliament on Thursday 17th September 2015 and received Royal Assent from the Queen on 22nd October 2015.

The BSL (Scotland) Act puts a duty on Scottish Ministers to promote the use and understanding of British Sign Language (BSL) and requires Scottish Ministers to prepare and publish BSL national plans. The first national plan must be published by October 2017.

After the first National Plan has been published in October 2017, other public bodies such as local councils, health boards and other public bodies, and universities and colleges – will have to publish their “authority” plans by October 2018. These plans should follow the lead taken by the Scottish Government on the National Plan and use a similar template.

What this means for you – this means that services will need to be accessible for BSL users within the community.

Lanarkshire Deaf Club SCIO

We will have TWO Halloween Parties on the 27th October. Last year, we had one party and we had too many people with little room that we do not want a repeat of that. So due to health and safety we have decided to split into 2 groups. ONE - Aim for children only (3pm-6pm) - only children to pay in , adults are free and can sit in the other room or stay in the hall. Children's best fancy dress will get money prize. TWO - Aim for adults/familes(7pm-10pm) - Adults to pay in, if the children already paid for the afternoon they don't have to pay again. Adults best fancy dress will get money prize but the children's prize will be sweets as already have money prize in the afternoon event. Hope that's clear - any question feel free to ask. ...
