Welcome to Deafblind UK
If you or someone you know is living with sight and hearing loss, we’re here to help. We are here every step of the way to reassure, advise or just to be someone to turn to if there is no one else. We provide practical help, emotional support, help with technology, information, advice and even holidays to anyone who needs it.
Sight and hearing loss can make everyday activities, like shopping or catching up with friends, very difficult. This can be frustrating, especially if you are used to a more independent lifestyle.
What is deafblindness?
Deafblindness is the loss of sight and hearing to the point where your communication, mobility and ability to access information are impacted. It affects everyone differently.
How we help
We support people who are deafblind, their families and carers with anything from to emotional support to help around the home - and everything in between!
Open Hand Magazine
Open Hand is our free, quarterly magazine containing articles and information that are tailored specifically to people with dual sensory loss.
There are very few publications designed for this specific market and so Open Hand gives its readers valuable information that they may not otherwise have known and reminds readers about Deafblind UK’s support services.
