British Sign Language (BSL) interpreting services
We have a BSL translation service on our website which means you can contact council services/departments through a BSL interpreter. You need a webcam for this. Just look for this sign.
When you click on this, you will be connected to a BSL interpreter through a webcam. The BSL interpreter will translate your questions.
