Deaf Sector Partnership (DSP) announces Youth National Advisory Group (YNAG) Information Day for young Deaf people ages between 10-18 years old living in Scotland – Saturday 20 February 2016
Scottish Government, Deaf Action and National Deaf Children’s Society Scotland (NDCS Scotland) have been working together to set up a Youth National Advisory Group (YNAG), where they would like the group to have around 12-15 members of young Deaf people from Scotland, aged between 10-18 (21 for those involved in care), and they can choose two people to be their representatives and attend the BSL NAG meetings on their behalf. They want everyone involved on the YNAG to raise issues that are important to them as young Deaf people, and how the BSL (Scotland) Act 2015 should be helping them with issues like Education, Health, Transport, Employment, access to sports or clubs in their community.
Deaf Sector Partnership is hosting a Youth National Advisory Group ‘Information Day’ on Saturday 20 February 2016 at 10.00am-3.00pm, at Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh where all young Deaf people in Scotland are welcome to attend. The event will be all about providing information on what the YNAG is about, how to be a member, how to vote for the two representatives, and most important of all, get to know each other. At the event, young Deaf people can sign up for YNAG.
