Open Hand Magazine

Open Hand is our quarterly magazine. It contains 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. Open Hand covers a wide range of topics including:

  • Equipment reviews
  • Accessible entertainment
  • Coping strategies
  • Loneliness and socialising
  • Activities, hobbies and interests
  • Benefits and entitlements
  • Technology tips
  • Life hacks
