We support people with combined sight and hearing loss to live the lives they want.
Whether you need some support to get back on your feet after a diagnosis, a helping hand to help you do the things you love, someone to turn to when you’re feeling low or some information, advice and guidance, we’re here to help.
Losing your sight and hearing can be frightening. Our team of experts is here every step of the way to show you life beyond sight and hearing loss.
“I will always like to do things for myself but I know that Deafblind UK is there if I come unstuck. I can just call them and I know there is someone there so I’m not on my own.”
Our vision is that people living with a combined sight and hearing loss have the same rights, access and opportunities as others.
Deafblind UK is a membership organisation of and governed by, people who have both a sight and hearing loss. We champion the rights and interests of all people who have a combined sight and hearing loss and deliver quality services to give these individuals autonomy and control over their lives. Through our work we support equality, independence and choice.
Our overarching goals
- To work towards a more equal society by raising awareness and understanding of deafblindness by engaging with people who have a sight and hearing loss, the Government and other organisations, individuals and communities.
- To enable people with both a sight and hearing loss to remain in their own homes and participate in their local communities.
- To provide relevant, high quality Peer Support, Befriending and Information and Advice services to people with a dual sensory loss, helping them to; live independently, interact with others, understand their rights and access their entitlements.
