Sign With Fingers
We've partnered with Cadbury Fingers to encourage more people to get chatting in British Sign Language (BSL). We’re also sharing deaf awareness tips to show how to include every deaf person in the conversation, however they communicate.
As part of the campaign, Cadbury is contributing to our Family Sign Language courses. This helps deaf children and their families to communicate in their everyday life.
