On 15 March 2016, the Department of Culture Arts and Leisure launched A Consultation seeking your views on a Framework promoting Sign Language to ensure that Irish Sign Language and British Sign Language users have the same rights, responsibilities, opportunities and quality of life as those in the hearing community. This will be achieved by enshrining equality and social inclusion in legislation for the current and future generations of Deaf Sign language users and their families.
