Signing the Promise

Learn to sign the Promise in Supported Sign Language and Makaton

Learn the Girlguiding Promise in Makaton and Sign Supported English (SSE)


Makaton uses signs and symbols with spoken language to encourage communication skills and develop speech.

Sign Supported English (SSE)

Sign Supported English is a way of using signs along with spoken English. It uses the same signs as British Sign Language (BSL) but follows the grammar and structure - like the order of words - of English.

For more signing resources, visit the National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS) .
