Welcome to your latest issue of ‘Reaching Out’! Here, you can read about all the ways your incredible support has been helping children who are deafblind or who have complex disabilities, like Annalise and Teegan.

Meet Annalise

On the first page of ‘Reaching Out’, you’ll meet seven-year-old Annalise who has CHARGE syndrome. Annalise is deaf and has limited sight as well as other health needs. She had a difficult start in life, and for a while her future was very uncertain – but Annalise is a little fighter. Find out how your support enables Sense to work with Annalise and her family, helping them to develop crucial communication skills. Thanks to you, Annalise can now express herself using signs, and her cheeky personality is shining through!

Catch up with Teegan

You’ll also hear from another star signer – 11-year-old Teegan! She’s signing ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported this year’s Sense Holiday Appeal. On page three, you can read more about how Teegan’s confidence and independence has grown since her Sense Holiday. You’ll also hear from Karen, Teegan’s mum, who was overwhelmed by the incredible support shown to our recent Sense Holiday Appeal. We couldn’t offer these incredible experiences without kind supporters like you – your support is amazing!

New: Meet our Team!

We hope you’ll be interested to read a new feature in ‘Reaching Out’ – Meet the Team! This issue features a short interview with Liz, who is a Consultant Teacher for children who are deafblind. Liz has a wealth of specialist knowledge, especially when it comes to ensuring children who are deafblind get the education they need. We hope you’ll enjoy hearing from her – and look forward to meeting other members of the team in future issues. 

Also in Reaching Out...

There’s a very special new addition to the family – Teddy Sense! You might have met Teddy through the Sense Raffle – perhaps you have been lucky enough to win him as a runner-up prize! Teddy Sense has been busy visiting our Sense Family Centres where he’s been joining in with lots of sensory activities. Find out more on page four!

In the Supporters’ Corner, you can read messages sent by wonderful Sense supporters in response to the Sense Holiday Appeal, and find out how you can win big in our weekly lottery!

We hope you enjoy reading your latest issue of ‘Reaching Out’. Every milestone that a child is able to reach comes about because of kind people like you. That’s why your support is so special. Thank you!

We hope you enjoy reading about the amazing difference your support makes to children who are deafblind. Thank you for your support.
