We have a dedicated team who provide specialist support for deafblind people.
The team is specially trained in deafblindness and offers an assessment and services to deafblind people, which will often include equipment.
The term 'deafblind' means people who have a combined vision and hearing impairment.
The services available depend on the individual but will usually be part of helping a person to:
- Manage communication with other people e.g. at the bank, in shops, on the telephone;
- Use information e.g. deal with letters, bank statements; and
- Get out and about in order to be more independent.
