The British Sign Language (BSL) Plan for East Renfrewshire sets out the actions we and our partners will take over from 2018 to 2024.
The plan is framed around the same long-term goals as the BSL National Plan 2017 to 2023, which was developed through extensive engagement with deaf and deafblind BSL users.
As a top performing council, our reputation can only be maintained if we continue to develop and grow to meet the needs of you, our customers.
The Modern Ambitious Programme (MAP) seeks to modernise the way we work and address the pressures of increasing demands and financial restrictions, focusing on 3 of our 5 capabilities:
There are 6 major programmes of change, each consisting of a large number of projects. The programmes are:
- Core Systems
- Environmental change programme
- Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) change programme (Fit for the Future)
- Education change programme
- Corporate and Community Services change programme
Over the last year, the main focus areas for MAP has been Core Systems, which is replacing our main ICT systems and streamlining processes for finance/procurement and the HR/payroll programme, and creating the digital programme as these will be the most important change programmes for departments.
The Programme Board are responsible for delivery at a programme level.
The Outcome Delivery Plan (ODP) is a 3 year plan, updated annually, which focuses on our activities, performance measures and targets. It also explains what we're doing to ensure delivery of the agreed local outcomes.
Our Gaelic Language Plan sets out how we'll work to develop and sustain the Gaelic language and its place in Scotland's heritage.
Gaelic Medium Primary Education
Following an assessment carried out in 2017, it was decided that there was not enough demand for Gaelic Medium Primary Education (GME) in East Renfrewshire.
For more information on how to request an assessment, read the Statutory Guidance on Gaelic Education.
We can make arrangements for some children and young people to access GME elsewhere. A request can be made at the time of applying for a primary one place.

East Renfrewshire faces great changes in its population in the coming years. We expect our population to increase, to have more elderly residents, to see a decline in death rates and to have an increase in the number of households, as more people live alone.
East Renfrewshire is already one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse communities in the country and we expect this trend to continue.
