Event Date: 09/09/2015 17:30 - 19:30

Justisigns is a 30-month project funded through the European Commission Leonardo Da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme. The focus of the project is police settings. The aim of the project is to promote ‘access to justice’ for deaf sign language users by developing a range of training materials and resources for deaf people, interpreters and police officers.

The evening is aimed at deaf people, interpreters, and any other people who work in the Deaf community and are interested in the project. We will present information about the project, and give an opportunity for people to ask questions. Information will be presented in BSL and an interpreter will be provided.
