What we do
We are a national charity that provides advice, information and specialist services for children and adults with dual-sensory impairments.
We will go the extra mile to help people find the information, services and support they need.
Community resource centres
We offer a range of supported accommodation services so that people can choose between the range of housing options.
Sense offers support to people living in the community:
- Intervenors help children and adults born deafblind to communicate, learn and grow in confidence
- Communicator-guides offer people who have become deafblind, often in later life, practical help, guiding and communication support
Our team of specialist advisory teachers, children’s therapists and children and family support workers offer professional and experienced help to children who are deafblind and multi-sensory impaired and to the professionals working with them.
Short breaks and getting together
TouchBase Birmingham is Sense’s exciting new development for people who are deafblind and those with sensory impairments, and the wider community in Birmingham.
Advice and support
