The BBC have announced that they will be providing Sign Language Interpretation on all weekday Coronavirus government briefings and that the BBC is doing everything it can to ensure these important briefings are accessible.
Please note: Due to limited resources there will be some changes to live signing on the BBC News from Monday 23rd March as follows:
On weekday mornings there will be signing from:-
07:45 – 08:15
13:00 – 13:30
News will be signed each weekday as normal as will the 07:00 – 07:30 slots on weekends.
The situation is quickly developing and the BBC will keep you informed of any further changes to their sign language coverage.
We would be grateful if you could share these changes with your networks.
