Deafblindness is a low incidence disability with increasing prevalence being identified. Common issues can be that accessibility features and assistance for someone with a single sensory impairment are often not suitable for those with severe dual sensory loss. This can mean that deafblind people can become isolated from the community in which they live.
Deafblind Scotland’s aim is to enable deafblind people to live as rightful members of their own communities.
Deafblind Scotland offers a variety of services such as communication and linguistic access advice, advice navigating self-directed support, information and formatting services, welfare rights support, accredited training and a guide/communicator service.
