Communication For All

We want Scotland to be the first Inclusive Communication Nation where it doesn’t matter what your language or communication needs are, they are met by

  • the Scottish Government,
  • the Scottish Parliament,
  • all the public bodies working in and across Scotland,
  • the Third Sector organisations that support and work with people; and
  • the private businesses

that provide services on a day to day basis.


To do this we provide advice and support on inclusive communication and accessible information. There is a cost to making sure all information is accessible for people across the four pillars of deafness, which then benefits everyone else in Scotland.

Give a donation to help us support Scotland become that first Inclusive Communication Nation.

Mental Health, Wellbeing, Resilience and Emotional First Aid

All a bit of mouthful! What do we mean and what are we doing?
Mental Health is how we feel, think and act on a daily basis.
Wellbeing is our daily state of being comfortable, healthy, and happy.

Resilience is our ability to stay mentally healthy when times or situations in our lives are more difficult than others.

First aid is the first thing that happens when someone has an accident or a mishap that affects their health. Emotional first aid is the first support that a person gets when they are starting to feel mentally unwell, when they are becoming anxious or agitated or are confused.


We are working with a number of mainstream mental health support providers to make sure deaf people’s mental health, wellbeing and resilience are being given the same consideration as that of their hearing peers, and that those who provide emotional first aid have the knowledge and skills to support deaf people at the time they are most vulnerable.

We need your donations to make this happen.

BSL for all

We are working to make sure Scotland is a safe place for all its citizens including people with a hearing loss, their families and friends. We are putting together accessible information on cycling and walking and are looking at what other information deaf people need to be able to look after themselves and their families when they are out and about at work, on days off or on their holidays.

Developing information and access points and working with others to make sure Scotland is a safe place costs money…we can’t make this work without you. Please give here.
