Individual support

You may need one-to-one support to help you with communication, getting around, and a range of everyday tasks.

At Sense, our services for children and adults who are deafblind or have other complex disabilities are built around the wishes and needs of each individual, providing specialist support exactly where it’s needed – in the home or community.

Our person-centred approach, using total communication, means we can support you as an individual, and your family, in the best way possible.

Individual support for people who are deafblind

Sense Communicator Guides and Intervenors can support people who are deafblind, their families, carers, and the professionals who work with them.

Sense Communicator Guides

Developing sight and hearing impairments as you get older (known as acquired deafblindness), can cause you to become increasingly withdrawn, depressed and isolated. But with the right help, you can continue to live a fulfilling life at home and in the community.

A Sense Communicator Guide offers communication support, guiding skills and practical help, such as shopping, dealing with correspondence or setting up medical appointments.

Their role is to support you to do the things you want to do, help you to live independently and be an active member of your community.

Sense Intervenors

If you are a child or adult born with sight and hearing impairments (known as congenital deafblindness), a Sense Intervenor can help you to experience and join in the world around you as much as possible.

The Sense Intervenor will work with you, and your family, to develop your communication, support your personal and social development, help you to access education, social and leisure opportunities and encourage you to be as independent as possible.
