British Sign Language (BSL) clips
Humberside Police and partner services in the East Riding have launched British Sign Language (BSL) clips to improve access to services for deaf and hearing impaired residents. The innovative BSL clips, which provide an alternative to written information, are a first of their kind in public services and have been produced following ongoing consultation with deaf and hearing impaired residents.
