Earlier this year DeafPLUS launched a British Sign Language (BSL) helpline for deaf BSL users. Using internet video platforms (Apple FaceTime & Skype; with potential to expand to others: OovoO, Tango and Google Hangout), the project enables deaf BSL users to access face to face money advice wherever they are in the country.
