Deaf Action posted a link in CharitiesSince our beginnings on Leith Street in Edinburgh over 180 years ago, we have been working together for an equal and better future for all deaf* people. We are proud to have been at the forefront of many major achievements – in fact we were the first formally constituted deaf organisation in the UK. We have always kept our values; respect, achievement, equality and transparency at the heart of our organisation. The many services and opportunities we have provided over the years, from our workshop on Albany Street in 1929 to our current Children in Need funded youth group for young deaf* people, all play a part in furthering our values and mission. Today, Deaf Action delivers a range of services to the estimated 950,000 people in Scotland with sensory support needs, including those who are blind, partially sighted, deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing. As part of a Scottish Government funded project we are establishing a benchmark for future dual sensory loss services in Scotland. Our extensive list of services includes: Adult learning BSL classes Communication & Interpreting Agency Deaf awareness training Employablility service Health project Multimedia production Social work Specialist equipment Support service Youth work Visit our website for more information and contact details for all of our services
Deaf Action have been hosting British Sign Language (BSL) classes since the 1980′s and in that time we have seen thousands of people successfully pass through our training centre. We use qualified and experienced deaf tutors for all of our British Sign Language courses and have amassed a collection of excellent resources and materials. Not sure what level you’re at? If you already have experience of using BSL, one of our tutors can assess your level so you begin with a class that matches your skills; just get in touch and we’ll do the rest. Most of our courses are accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and all of our BSL courses qualify for ILA Scotland funding. Payment plans are available for our SQA accredited courses and details can be found in the application packs on our website. Terms run twice a year in Spring and Autumn. SQA courses run from Introduction level to level 3. We also run 6 week taster courses for those who aren't sure about joining a full course.
