DWP is leading a review of the market for British Sign Language (BSL) and communication support for people who are deaf, deafblind or have a hearing loss. We are working in collaboration with other government departments, support organisations and the communications and language profession.
This call for evidence supports the review by:
- seeking to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the market
- identifying factors that may affect future provision of these services
