Equipment and assistive technology can help people with dual sensory impairments to live independently, access information and opportunities. We provide assessments, advice, guidance and training to help you identify the right technology and equipment for you and learn how to use it effectively.
Those who are deafblind or have dual sensory loss sometimes need support to help them look for a job, access support in the workplace or to access training and education opportunities. Our service has been specifically designed to meet their needs. We also provide advice and support to employers.
We know there are barriers to accessing services, information and activities related to your health and wellbeing. We offer advice, support and activities to support you to manage health conditions, prevent or delay health conditions wherever possible and maintain your health.
Sometimes people need a little advice and support to help them live independently and safely within their own home and in their local community. We can provide a range of support around this including specialist Deafblind Assessments, Communicator Guide support, and rehabilitation, mobility and orientation training. Please note, support available varies in each area.
We provide interpreting and communication support services to support communication between those who are deafblind and those who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing or hearing. This includes Deafblind communication such as hands on signing, visual frame and Deafblind Manual.
