The British Sign Language (BSL) Plan for East Renfrewshire sets out the actions we and our partners will take over from 2018 to 2024.

The plan is framed around the same long-term goals as the BSL National Plan 2017 to 2023, which was developed through extensive engagement with deaf and deafblind BSL users.

East Renfrewshire does not currently have GME provision within the council area. View more information on how to access GME on the Schools and Learning section of our website.  

East Renfrewshire faces great changes in its population in the coming years. We expect our population to increase, to have more elderly residents, to see a decline in death rates and to have an increase in the number of households, as more people live alone.

East Renfrewshire is already one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse communities in the country and we expect this trend to continue.
