Our Ambassadors

Sense has recruited inspirational deafblind people to work as our Ambassadors, speaking in public about their lives, their experiences and their passions.

Our ambassadors will help us raise awareness of deafblindness and the work Sense do to support and campaign for deafblind people across the UK and beyond.

With the Ambassador Scheme, we want to achieve:

Better public awareness of Sense and deafblindness
Who better to tell the story of deafblindness than deafblind people themselves?

Demystifying deafblindness
By promoting positive ­ and sometimes challenging ­ experiences of deafblindness we can give insight into what can often be misunderstood.

Celebration and engagement
We want to acknowledge and support deafblind people and their families in celebrating their lives and achievements.

What is the role of Sense Ambassadors?
They do all sorts of things - representing Sense, helping to increase public awareness, raise Sense’s profile, attend Sense events, participate in campaigns and speak to the public in all sorts of ways!
