Sensory Services Team

What does it do?

We can offer advice and information covering a wide range of issues surrounding sensory loss.  Once you have been referred to a sensory worker the team will offer an assessment of your abilities and social care needs.  If eligible we will work with you to decide which services / equipment will meet your needs. 

We also offer support to families and carers and can provide a separate assessment to carers of disabled people. If you need services that are provided by other teams in Adult Support Services (eg personal care or day activities) we will work together to give you a joint assessment.
