Wellbeing & Emotional Support

Our wellbeing and emotional support service can help you through particularly difficult times.

You can contact our trained staff and volunteers who are non-judgemental and experienced in helping people who are deafblind. We can contact you at regular times throughout the year to see how you’re doing and to offer any advice or support that you might need. We can also send you Christmas and birthday cards and put you in touch with other people who are in a similar position to you.


Through our wellbeing service, we can give you:

  • Three-monthly contacts from our team to check in on how you are doing
  • Christmas and birthday wishes

Six-week emotional support

Our six-week support service gives you the chance to talk through feelings, thoughts and emotions, rather than a general chat. It offers you the space, safety and warmth to talk openly and honestly with our trained advisors.

We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and everyone is facing different challenges. We will work with you through a six-week program which aims to help you to make sense of your feelings. This might be the start of a longer journey for you, or it might be a continuation of one you have already started.

At the end of the six-week program, we will agree a personalised ongoing plan to make sure that you are fully supported in the future.

The service is available to anyone who has sight and hearing loss, and their carers.


Our counselling service gives you a safe space to talk about your feelings and emotions. Our fully qualified counsellors can help you to make sense of any issues that might be causing anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, loneliness and isolation.

We offer a course of 10 sessions, each one being 50 minutes long.

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.
