Sense Service Provision:

Sense is a national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind. We provide tailored support, advice and information as well as specialist services to all deafblind people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them. We also support people who have a single sensory impairment with additional needs.

We believe that every deafblind person has the right to choose the support and lifestyle that is right for them; one that takes into account their long-term hopes and aspirations. We offer high quality, flexible services across the UK, using skilled staff and a dedicated network of volunteers. By offering a range of housing, educational and leisure opportunities, we can tailor the support we offer to the individual needs of each person, so that everyone can live as independently as possible and participate fully in their local communities.

Our services include on-going support for deafblind people and their families. These range from day services, where deafblind people have the opportunity to learn new skills to Sense-run houses in the community, where people are supported to live as independently as possible. Our communicator-guides offer support to deafblind people living in their own homes and our dedicated Information & Advice team provide support and advice on all issues relating to deafblindness.
