Service description:
Sense is the leading national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind. We provide expert advice and information as well as specialist services to deafblind people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them. We also support people who have sensory impairments with additional disabilities.

Community resource centres
In our community resource centres around the UK, people are able to choose from a wide range of activities and programmes that can help them to develop their communication and living skills.

Accommodation choices
We offer a range of supported accommodation services so that people can choose between the range of housing options.

One-to-one support
Sense offers support to people living in the community:
- Interveners help children and adults born deafblind to communicate, learn and grow in confidence
- Communicator-guides offer people who have become deafblind, often in later life, practical help, guiding and communication support

Children’s support
Our team of specialist advisory teachers, children’s therapists and children and family support workers offer professional and experienced help to children who are deafblind and multi-sensory impaired and to the professionals working with them.
