“BSS staff (Tom Orr and Jill Brennan) are able to promote the use of symbols and offer support for their use and maintainence; these are essential services which cannot be provided by any other service. They are local and accessible and have built up a wealth of knowledge about the practical use of symbols which is invaluable.”
