Our popular Voices Off Cafe is now going to be open in the evening from 11th March! Sessions will run from 6:30pm to 7:30pm every week at Forth Valley Sensory Centre, Redbrae Rd, Camelon, Falkirk FK1 4DD.

With so many people wanting to learn BSL we have managed to secure support from the local See Hear Fund to put on evening sessions.

This is not an acredited course and does not lead to a certificate, but it is a fun, relaxed and social occasion where you can learn BSL from the experts, real deaf people and pick up a new skill. BSL is a language in its own right, and because it does not follow the same grammar and rules as English, is a rewarding and challenging skill to have.

Centre Manager, Jacquie Winning said: “Our Voices Off Cafe has been running successfully from 11am – 2pm every second Wednesday of each month, but we had lots of people requesting an evening class due to work commitments.

“We are delighted to be able to open up and evening version so everyone can learn BSL in a relaxed and supportive environment. At just £1 for a tea or coffee it is excellent value too!”

Doors will open at 6pm for a 6:30pm start so there is chance to get comfy and have a chat with new friends before each meeting.

The focus will be on conversational BSL and basic interaction; such as saying hello, asking someone’s name and talking about the day.
