The diocese is also an active part of the newly formed Lincolnshire Deaf Alliance, which, among other things, seeks to recruit and train BSL-using volunteers to provide ‘befriending’ services to deaf people in Lincolnshire, liaise with other organisations that provide services to deaf people and provide BSL training, workshops and lectures.
