Welcome to Lanarkshire Deaf Club (LDC)

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

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 provides British Sign Language Training for individuals, schools and businesses.
  • Please get in contact for further information on the training courses we provide.
