Daniel Jillings

Daniel Jillings is a Deaf campaigner and BSL user, who has recently been in the media for his participation in the campaign for the introduction of a British Sign Language GCSE. After learning that when the time came to complete his GCSE’s he would not be able to complete one in BSL, his first language, Daniel decided to take legal action. His challenge succeeded and the Government has now started work on developing a new BSL GCSE qualification. Since then, Daniel has worked tirelessly to fight for equal accessibility and the rights of thousands of Deaf children in the UK.
