Solihull Sensory Service
We deliver a range of specialist support to people living in Solihull who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired or have a dual sensory loss. We also provide support to families, carers, professionals and other organisations, working together to improve the lives of Solihull residents and helping them to remain independent. The service supports people aged 18 and over and young people transitioning from children’s services.
We provide professional social work services to d/Deaf and hard of hearing adults and young people over the age of 17 who are in transition. This includes person centred assessments, support planning, reviews and signposting to other services.
For d/Deaf and hard of hearing people, our Technical Officer can undertake assessments to help people access equipment for use in the home. For those with mobility issues, assessments can be carried out within the home.
We support clients with sight loss to live as independently as possible through specialist rehabilitation support. This can include mobility and orientation training and daily living skills.
