​The Sensory service supports people with a sight or hearing loss.


After an assessment we can provide specialist services to eligible people to best meet their needs.

Services for people with a sight or hearing impairment


We offer support, information and advice to adults with significant sight or hearing loss.

After been certified by a consultant, we can register people as sight or hearing impaired, either partially or severely.

Following a specialist assessment of your needs, we could provide:
 
  • Training and equipment to promote your safety and independence
  • Referral to other agencies or professionals for information, advice and service
  • Care support within your own home and to help you use community facilities
  • Support and advice to young people aged 18-25 while they move from school to further education and work.
 

We only provide equipment to people with a working hearing aid after being assessed by an audiologist, except in special circumstances.
