Support for veterans

If you have reduced sight and hearing as a result of, or since serving in the Armed Forces, then we can help. We offer the following services for veterans, and these are all free to access.

  • Helpline – Our helpline is now open to veterans who have problems with sight and hearing. We can give you practical advice and emotional support between 8am and 8pm every day.
  • Pensions and benefits – Our team can guide you through the complexities of the different armed forces pensions, benefits and other advice.
  • Virtual social groups – Our virtual social groups allow you to remotely meet and talk to other veterans on a regular basis.
  • Buddying – Our buddying service puts you in touch with like-minded people to share stories, advice or just enjoy some company.
  • Help to access personal grants – We can advise you on what funds might be available to you and how to access them.
  • Clubs and groups – We can visit your existing social groups and clubs and support them to become more accessible to sight and hearing loss.
  • Technology support – Our digital support service helps you to make the most of your tablet or mobile phone in the way that best suits your level of sensory loss.

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.
