Are you struggling with sensory loss?

If you or a relative are struggling with a vision loss, hearing loss or both, we can work with you to identify what help and support you need.

We can advise on the initial steps that you need to take and signpost you to the correct health professional, organisation, association and charity that can offer you more insight into your sensory loss for example:

We can give advice on the processes to become registered as:

  • sight impaired / partially sighted
  • severely sight impaired / blind
  • hard of hearing
  • deaf
  • deafblind

The aim of the sensory service is to enable people to remain, or become, as independent as possible.
