Petition Require British Sign Language Interpreters for emergency announcements on TV.
The Deaf community want the government to make a commitment to provide BSL interpreters alongside any emergency announcements. This will allow members of the Deaf community to access information in their preferred language.
The government has a duty of care to its citizens, therefore it is their responsibility to ensure any public announcements made are accessible for all. This is covered by both the Equality Act 2010 and the Human Rights Act 1998.
