Get in touch
We’re here to offer free, practical advice to any parents of children with complex disabilities, including deafblindness, including discussing a referral.
Our free support helps children who are deafblind or who have complex disabilities access education, playgroups and holidays, so they have the same life experiences as everyone else.
From play and communication sessions to individualised support, we have lots of free opportunities for children to try new things, learn skills and make friends.
Our multi-sensory impairment (MSI) specialists support children and young people who are deafblind to develop their ability to communicate, socialise and play. We also help with access to appropriate education, health and care.
We want to see and celebrate all the fabulous qualities and unique strengths your child has. Explore the many ways we can support your family:
