Support our Right to Sign - British Sign Language in schools

This petition had 6,956 supporters

Over 90% of young people want the Right to Sign in school. Will you support them?

British Sign Language is a rich and vibrant language used by lots of deaf people across the UK but courses are few and far between and are often expensive. Getting British Sign Language on to the curriculum would help to break down barriers between deaf and hearing people. 

We recently asked over 2000 deaf and hearing young people how they felt about BSL and 97% wanted it to be taught in schools

Now those young people are asking you for your support. Will you back their Right to Sign?
